Summary:
I think what Dana fails to get here is that IBM is only pro-open source in areas where they DON’T have market share, and when the open source community comes sniffing around IBM’s cash cows, they react as badly as any proprietary company. You can’t judge the company’s open source commitment when you’re looking at markets that are adjacent to its core business or markets where it has no share. When open source efforts to encroach on core business, IBM fails.
