Robert Dewar’s FOSDEM 2012 keynote titled Free Software: A viable model for Commercial Success has been put online (webm video), and it is, as always with mr. Dewar, a great talk.
I really liked the angle of his talk, especially because we at the AdaHeads project intend to go down that exact route with our products. It was good to hear that it is indeed a viable business model.
If you’re doubtful about the viability of open source software as the foundation for making money, then don’t miss Robert’s talk.
