Just my opinion but Open-Source seems to be unsustainable in the corporate world. A fair amount of Open-Source also relies on VC funding, which many seem to dislike.
@jordan31 another hindrance is the need for enterprise support. When shit hits the fan, someone needs to be liable to fix it. As well, it takes time and effort to assure things like SOC2 or HIPAA compliance
@brandon I believe there should be other license pushed forward to the corporate world besides the OSI approved ones. Microsoft has a couple that are interesting, as well as University of Washington, their original license for Pine.
@brandon they retain intellectual property rights but allow for viewing the source code and in some cases modifying. But this still allows for a normal business model and hopefully to create more funding for the project.
@jordan31 I'd be all for that because at least we'd be able to do more in depth auditing of the source AND enterprise could eventually be convinced to change their auditing methodology
