'MySQL, Linux powers Web 2.0' - O'Reilly

Without Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP many Web 2.0 companies would not exist today.

"Without the LAMP software stack, many Web 2.0 companies would have never got off the ground," said O'Reilly...

When it comes to software applications, this outlook does not necessarily hold true...


Open source or proprietary: Which is the ideal platform for innovation?

'm reading a research paper by Nicholas Economides (NYU) and Evangelos Katsamakas (Fordham) called "Linux vs. Windows: A comparison of application and platform innovation incentives for open source and proprietary software platforms."
