Is the Open Source movement dead?

Tight Budgets Incite Renewed Interest in Open-Source Technology

While some were beginning to believe that the ship had sailed on the open-source movement, increased focus on cost cutting over the past year has breathed new life into the acceptance of this technology. With competition in the business market heating up, organizations are looking for new ways to increase cost and performance efficiencies.

In addition, wide spread industry frustration over commercial software coupled with growing security concerns have further spawned the open-source appeal from both an operating system and application development level.

In response, many companies are banking on open-source solutions as a possible solution to address some of these concerns. As this trend continues to blossom, more IT engineering job positions are opening up looking for professionals who are skilled and have experience in any of the LAMP technologies (i.e. Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). Individuals with these types of open-source skills are finding themselves in demand from businesses across the country.
