LXer: IW: OpenVistA« 'On The Bubble'
Published at LXer:

Information Week has an article entitled: 'How To Tell The Open Source Winners From The Losers' and prominently features Medsphere's OpenVistA® as being 'on the bubble' and some factual errors regarding the troubled software:'...OpenVista was posted on SourceForge on June 6. It wasn't a big surprise; the posting had been promised several times by Medsphere, a company founded to commercialize OpenVista. But things unraveled quickly. Within four months, Medsphere sued co-founder and CTO Steve Shreeve, who was responsible for the posting. In a complaint filed in Superior Court of Orange County, Calif., Medsphere charged that Shreeve and his older brother, Scott, Medsphere's chief medical officer at the time, had breached their fiduciary duty as directors, violated confidentiality agreements, and caused the company to suffer $50 million in damages.
