I have recently met a few individuals who do not ascribe positive value to open source. Â I had thought the open software versus closed software argument was decided circa 2005. Â Unfortunately, a few renegade individuals are holding out, and believe in the goodness of autocratic companies who operate without transparency. Â It took me awhile to dig into the bias and understand the root concern; an organizational need for competent technical support, high usability, and a viable roadmap. Â Corporate sponsored open source solves these concerns.
