I know everyone's been saying it: The economic downturn will drive more people to open source. Because OpenLogic sells support on 500 projects as well as open source governance services and solutions, we get a very broad view of enterprise use of open source. After analyzing our Q3 and 2009 results, I've seen the data, and I'm here to tell you that open source is looking good.
A recent survey we did of enterprises using open source, showed that they are not big fans of the open-core business model. Recent blogs by Matthew Aslett, Jay Lyman, John Mark Walker center around this issue of the future of the open core business model.
I recently wrote a blog post about what what happened when Projity (backers of OpenProj) got acquired by Serena Software.
Update 10/5/09: The day after I wrote this blog and twittered it, the OpenProj committers provided the missing source code.
