If you didn’t catch our Bunker event on open source this morning, I suggest viewing the archived version when you get a chance. The discussion was quite provocative, as might be expected with panelists like Javier Soltero (SpringSource) and Simon Crosby (Citrix), and audience members like Jesse Robbins (Opscode). I thought one particularly intriguing point is that free isn’t solely the province of open source. To the degree that open source is about mitigating risk, free proprietary software could lessen the urge to go open source. On an unrelated note, check out coverage of Dell’s new systems-management software and these Hadoop survey results.
