Open-source tech is on fire. It should be. It is licensed to build on, and works (damn well in many cases). Not surprisingly, “experts” are now recommending that enterprises take a taste, even if it means mixing it with commercial products.
Its about time they got with the program. Some of the biggest companies out there (think huge website) are using open source products for even mission critical stuff. The whole environment revolves around cooperation – even the popular OS databases make solid efforts get along with each other.
There is no reason to suggest the world outside of OS can’t get along with them as well.
