Hats off to Red Hat – Thoughts 0n Billion-Dollar Open Source Companies

Earlier this week, there was another great Glyn Moody post entitled Why No Billion-Dollar Open Source Companies? onComputerworldUK’s Open Enterprise blog. Glyn’s post has, in addition to creating a lot of Twitter buzz and banter, triggered some great posts (see, for example, Matt Asay ‘s Old-fashioned money and Dan Blankenhorn’s There may never be another Red Hat but that is OK posts). The debate is doing an excellent job of highlighting the many business forms (and benefits) that commons sourcing can take (and give)!

As someone who has a looming deadline on my first draft of my OSBR article on open source software business models, it is wonderful to have so many great minds debating the issues. And lest we forget, in the midst of this debate, to give credit where much credit is due – Hats off to Red Hat!
