Should Sony Ericsson Make UIQ Open Source?

Sony Ericsson last month at 3GSM in Barcelona said it was looking for partners for its UIQ platform, which it acquired several months earlier. The move was designed to help Sony Ericsson grow UIQ beyond just the confines of its own handset ecosystem and to challenge Nokia's S60 platform. Sony Ericsson is obviously trying to make sure that S60 doesn't dominate the smartphone marketplace. But is Sony Ericsson's current strategy the best way to achieve this end?

Back to baseball with Retrosheet and OSS

One out and the bases are full of Indians. Grady Sizemore steps up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning with the Tribe on the wrong end of a 3-1 game against the Kansas City Royals. The first pitch he sees is a ball. After fouling off a pitch and watching the next ball blocked by the catcher he slices a fly ball to left field, clearing the bases of teammates to win the game. As I drove myself home that night I wondered how unusual it was for a game to end on a bases-loaded triple. I figured the best way to look it up was to visit Retrosheet and look through their data files.

Free software is nothing to fear

Nat Torkington stirred up some controversy when he asked, "Is 'Open Source' Now Completely Meaningless?" He has a good point, however. With so many companies claiming to be "open source" -- despite seemingly disparate business models and licensing schemes -- it's getting hard to tell what is legitimate open source and what isn't. The mere fact that so many voices have begun to weigh in on the issue is proof of how murky these waters have become.

Eric Raymond: Yes, "open source" is still meaningful

Writing in O'Reilly's Radar, Nat Torkington argues that the term "open source" is becoming meaningless. He points to SugarCRM's badgeware, through which, he claims, only two-thirds of their code is downloadable, and rPath and MontaVista, which "sell software that works on Linux but the software itself isn't actually open source." Open-source leader Eric S. Raymond replied to Torkington's essay in a letter to O'Reilly and several journalists, in which he asserted that the open source "label is still valid and important. I'm a pragmatist, so I'm not going to wave any flags or sing any anthems to argue this, just point out what has worked and continues to work."
