LXer: Hire Open Source Developers -- or Partner With Them?

Published at LXer:

Everywhere we turn these days, we see evidence of open source developers trading their time and hard work for little more than the hope of benefiting the ever-growing open source community. While there are many companies world-wide enjoying the benefits of a number of Linux and open source products, there are instances where creating sustainable employment for these talented individuals is problematic at best. Then I came across the The Development Cloud. This is a company that has found it mutually beneficial to share fifty percent of its profit which is derived from closed source software to reward developers of associated open source software projects. (See details here.) I think this is fantastic.

[A Matt Hartley piece that makes sense. I'm as flabbergasted as you are. - Sander]
