Open Source Calling

  • (Posted by dave on Jul 29, 2005 1:22 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
I am running out of options for areas in my IT operation that legitimately shouldn't be open source. Operating system? Linux works like a champ. Web server? If you're not running Apache at this point, what are you doing? Database layer? MySQL scales fine for most Web-based apps, and basic master/slave software clustering for it is free, which can save roughly six figures over a commercial solution if you're running more than a couple of database servers. App server? J Boss if you want Java, or you could just use PHP running on Apache, among many other choices. OK, I haven't spent any money on software yet, and hardware is cheap. I'm surveying my office right now, looking for something that I couldn't enable with open source software, and my eyes fix on that ugly corporate phone that hooks into the old PBX. I feel helpless before it - I look at it and the words "lock in" might as well be blaring from the speakerphone. There's nothing I can do about it. Open source can't help me with my crusty old PBX. Except that it can. And for me, that suggests that open source can - and will - go anywhere and everywhere.

Bloggers have put "real" journalists on the defensive in a big way. You can't believe bloggers, say some "real" journalists -- they have no editorial boards, no fact-checking, no training or credentials.

Yeah, right. Let me share an amusing little tale with you about the difference between bloggers and "real" journalists. Take a look at is a blog.
