Open Source Business Models: A Wall Street Look at a Wild 2006 and the Prospects for Even More Fun in 2007

Stephen Walli points to a presentation from EclipseCon by Brent Williams entitled: “Open Source Business Models: A Wall Street Look at a Wild 2006 and the Prospects for Even More Fun in 2007”. The presentation is fairly long at 48 slides, but contains some very good information. You might not agree with all the specific details presented in the slide, but the end result comes together nicely. His interface standard vs implementation standard explanation using a Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Hyundai Excel drives home the point nicely. He also covers commoditization issues and the recent Oracle Linux foray, among others items, quite well. Overall the presentation is definitely worth the read. I wish I’d have been at EclipseCon to see it myself.
