Subject: Open Source adoption in Education Sector: Interview with Patrick Masson from OSI

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With the perceived growth of FLOSS deployments in the world's education sector, we wanted to try to confirm our intuition. What better way of doing so than going directly to the source. In this instance, we reached out to Patrick Masson, Director and General Manager at Open Source Initiative (OSI). He was kind enough to put a lot of time and effort into answering questions in this area. He provides plenty of reasons to confirm our initial thoughts. Please enjoy reading through the immense amount of information Patrick provided to us.

Subject: Why Using Open Source Software Helps Companies Stay Flexible and Innovate

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Open source software offers more flexibility because it’s vendor neutral, there are no contractual limits on deployment, the source code allows customization, and open source communities support development and maintenance.

Subject: Shaping the Culture of Open Source Companies

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With all of the discussion about source code contributions in open source, sometimes we don’t spend enough time talking about the culture. In her keynote at LinuxCon Europe, Stormy Peters points out that when we say the word "culture," we sometimes think only about diversity or hiring more women, but culture means more than that. Culture is about how we work, how we think, and how we interact with each other.
