Abstract

In the contemporary software landscape, the open source movement can no longer be overlooked by any major players in the industry, as the movement portends a paradigm shift and is forcing a major rethinking of strategy in the software business. For instance, companies like Oracle, Microsoft, and IBM now offer the lightweight versions of their proprietary flagship products to small—to-medium businesses at no cost for product trial (Samuelson, 2006). These developments are signs of the success of the OSS movement.
