Submission + - Survey on the Future of Open Source, and Lessons from the Past

An anonymous reader writes: Andy Oram on quality, security, and community driving open source adoption "All too often, the main force uniting competitors is the fear of another vendor and the realization that they can never beat a dominant vendor on its own turf. Open source becomes a way of changing the rules out from under the dominant player. OpenStack, for instance, took on VMware in the virtualization space and Amazon.com in the IaaS space. Android attracted phone manufacturers and telephone companies as a reaction to the iPhone."
