What price software? 

This article details a change I have been seeing for some time already.


I've been arguing this has been with us for a while - even at the height of
the .COM boom.

Customers appreciate the open source approach and paying for service and value - the RedHat model.

And this is the real driver behind the battles around IPR and licensing between the traditional major corporation vendors and the open source and open public specification communities.

The traditional vendors are trying to minimize customers options - and preserve the old selling models as the only viable option. They need to change, or whither and fail in the after shock from the .COM meltdown.

People are not being fooled.
