Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source
As the clock ticks toward 2004, we decided that we should spare you our
dutiful predictions or indeed a year in review, as if you never heard
of SCO or Novell or that a CIO on Wall Street likes doing clusters on
What we do bring you is a special edition of New Year's wishes from
Open Source voices in the frontlines who, through the years, have not
swerved from their convictions that the business adoption of Open Source is
going to happen--and happen--in public and private organizations around
Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB, is an Open Source advocate who clearly
proves in 2004 that with great technology you can do great business.
John Terpstra, co-founder of Samba, is an Open Source practitioner who
clearly proves what can be accomplished in exhibiting, to use one of his
phrases, "spinal stamina" in standing up against deficient solutions.
Read what both want to share as their New Year's wishes for what they
genuinely believe in: the business future of Open Source.
