I read Siemens article on Free and Open Source Movements. I actually have a special connection with Open Source resources because I use an open source operating system based on GNU/Linux called Ubuntu. I found the article extremely informative because I understand now why the push for open source is so big. Proprietary companies such as Microsoft or Apple have a huge stranglehold on the market, but I believe it is only because open source software is not as well known as it should be. It saves money, and is very reliable because there always hackers trying to fix it and make it better. Everything that someone can get with Microsoft, I can get it just as good or even better like a word processor or powerpoint. If you want to learn more read the article and maybe give me your opinion on it. I would like to hear what you guys think.
