Open source 'taking over the software world'

From CIO

"It's been only a few weeks since the Linux Foundation released its report that enterprise use of Linux continues to rise, but last week fresh data came out that suggests the same is true of open source software in general.

Specifically, Black Duck Software and North Bridge Venture Partners announced the results of the seventh annual Future of Open Source Survey, which found that open source software has matured to such an extent that it now influences everything from innovation to collaboration among competitors to hiring practices.

‘It's been recognised that software is eating the world,’ said Michael Skok, general partner at North Bridge Venture Partners. ‘Our survey points to the fact that open source is eating the software world.’

With more than 800 respondents from both vendor and non-vendor communities, the 2013 survey reflects the views of the largest sample in its history. It polled respondents about open source trends and opportunities, key drivers of open source adoption, community engagement, and the business problems open source will solve now and in the future.”
