Open and beyond..

I spent a lot of this morning reading articles about people just starting to understand the concept of open source. It really has become part of everything. I would guess that there isn’t a single fortune 500 company that doesn’t have some of it.

People worry about it. I have to say I worry about it. I have a ton of knowledge about solaris and zfs and want to pass that on. I don’t want to work for Oracle, not my cup of tea.

How many 1000’s of products are in the tech market place that are based on Open source?

I also think people should be able to make a living on open source. The value add’s to open source are training, consulting or support. I choose training because it is the thing I do best.
