School help.. I need an article...


Can someone help me locate an article relating to Open Source software in the enterprise that states the cons of it?? (i know its kind of an oxy-moron )

That is a good suggestion, There is mention of it in my "pro" article, however it is quite old.... written in 1984, and I do not think it would apply in todays time. But I only have a few more hours to complete the paper, So I think I will use this!

Thanks
Trey

EDIT: that paper was not written in 84.. I was refering to the wrong article... This one might work for what I neeed

Are you sure there are any cons in Open Source?

thats what I was implying...

I took a really cool approach to the pros and cons after I got to writing this paper (it was due last night)

I used the pros of cost, security & stability... and I used the same as cons.. Worked out nicly.. now if the grade is nice I dont know.
