LXer: Free software’s Faustian moment

Published at LXer:

Free Software is big business. This may come as a surprise to those whose understanding of open source software development practice ends at the caffeinated hacker contributing code in the small hours from the comfort of his bedroom. But in between this, and the fact that five of the ten most reliable web hosters run their sites on the open source operating system Linux, is the story of an industry of support and bespoke development that gives the major corporations running this software the products and peace of mind they need to conduct business on a grand scale.
