Submission + - Can Hadoop Survive its Weird Beginning? (forbes.com)

concealment writes: "Hadoop is not like other efforts to commercialize open source in some important ways. In addition, is arriving at a time in which some of the traditional advantages of open source-based business models have eroded because of cloud computing and other developments.

Most people think of Hadoop as pioneering technology that is being developed through an open source ecosystem. But if we take a closer look at Hadoop’s origins and the current structure of its community, it quickly becomes clear that Hadoop is not following the footsteps of other projects like Linux, Drupal, Alfresco, or JBoss. Hadoop started out differently and has evolved into a structure that is much different than any other project that is so prominent."
