Gartner Turns Positive on Open Source by billm

There’s an interesting Slashdot thread going at: http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/04/04/235212 .

It stems from a ZD Net story about Gartner acknowledging that OSS is on the rise.   

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it writes "In a few years' time, almost all businesses will use open source, according to analyst Gartner — which has up to now been fairly cautious, or downright negative, in its previous predictions about community developed software. '"By 2012, more than 90 percent of enterprises will use open source in direct or embedded forms,' predicts a Gartner report, The State of Open Source 2008, which sees a 'stealth' impact for the technology in embedded form: "Users who reject open source for technical, legal or business reasons might find themselves unintentionally using open source despite their opposition.'"
