LXer: Recession tipping IT toward open source?

Published at LXer:

The recession has sharply accelerated interest in open source technologies among enterprise IT buyers, says an eWEEK story. Pointing to recent remarks made by Alfresco GM Matt Asay, the story says that cost pressures and the growing maturity of open-source software has led to a pronounced shift in recent months. Only two and a half years ago, potential buyers of Alfresco's Linux-ready web content management tools were telling Asay that open source software was "too risky" for them. A week ago, the same buyer changed his mind, telling Asay that in the current economic climate, he could lose his job buying expensive proprietary software, according to the story.
