Indiana Press

Some nice press coverage starting to flow about the upcoming binary release of OpenSolaris that will include new package management software:
This is all very welcome news, and I have a feeling there will be a lot more coverage in the coming months about all the open source projects.

For me, open source offers the opportunity for individuals to benefit as well as the entire community. Simon Phipps sums that thought in a quote in the InfoWorld article: "Contributions are given back to the community to enrich everyone, like the craft guilds of the Middle Ages, he said. 'This has been called communism by some speakers. It's been called a cancer on society by others. I would suggest to you that this is more like capitalism, it is more like a connected capitalism where people synchronize their self interests so that they are collaborating together.'"
