Open source or Open Core or Commercial... Does it matter??

This is my 2 cents in the Open Source vs. Open Code vs. Commercial debate. And it's a long one...

Maybe some of you reading this are offended already, but bear with me, I'll get there. The way I see the Open Source model, having worked with OSS at MySQL for 6+ years now, is that this is a great way of developing software. Not brilliant, but great, but I'll get there also.

Users of OSS, in my mind, are OSS users for one or more of three reasons:

  • It's Open - The users using OSS for this reason believes that being open is in and of itself a great thing, enough so to use OSS even when non-OSS is less expensive and/or better.

Also, this solution uses Sun's Open Storage products as the core storage component which are built using Open Source software and industry standard components. Combine those with an Open Source operating system like Solaris or Linux and you have a complete BI solution built on an Open Source software stack.
