It is confirmed; open source has hit the top of the bell-curve. Gartner now believes it's a tipping-point trend, so it's definitely the case that open source software is mainstream and has been for several years.

Lengthy and favourable review of the 451 report on "Control and Community" (which they have very kindly sent to me as well). I agree with Henrik that it's an excellent report.

Matthew Aslett makes a bid to become the definitive index of community comment on the MySQL dimension of Oracle's attempt to buy Sun.

Which is, of course obviously true (otherwise known as "lock-in"). What's missing from this article (not seen the report) is any mention of the thing that has actually made Microsoft change their behaviour, which is not Google Docs or Zoho Office but rather OpenOffice.org, which has seen a surge of government adoption in 2008.

"This report from the Burton group does little to add clarity to the increasingly murky format debate." I have to agree; someone over there seems to have an axe to grind.
