The Daily 451 Covers XAware by billm

Analyst "The 451 Group" covered XAware's move to open source in its Market Insight Service - Impact Report on Monday, 7 Jan 2008. If you are a 451 subscriber you can access the report here .

Here is their summary:

The 451 Take

XAware is making a bold, aggressive move by transforming itself into a commercial open source company in an effort to reach new customers and lower its costs of doing business. We've heard XAware talk a good game before, to little avail, but there's reason to believe the company has it right this time: It's had more commercial success to date, has a deep management bench, a smart marketing message and the right partnerships in place. Still the transition to commercial open source won't be easy, dual license or not, and the competition waiting for XAware may be better than it realizes. 

  We appreciate the coverage.  451 is known for its balanced approach to assessing companies it watches.  They endorsed XAware's moves and position in general, but added a healthy dose skepticism.  In spite of their having implied that we may be underestimating some of our challenges, we do know the problems we are tackling are big and difficult, there is a big need and opportunity in solving them which attracts lots of competition to come up with the best solutions, but that just makes us better.   We are excited to have the opportunity to work on this exciting project.  This is exactly where we want to be!  Thanks 451.
