Here are two CDDL clips I tripped over recently and a couple of excerpts:
Changes in open-source licensing hot topic at LinuxWorld, by Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols and Peter Galli
One shape this might take, according to Steve Garone, vice president and senior analyst for the research house Ideas International Ltd., is Sun’s CDDL. “Sun just might be on the right path,” he said.
What is the biggest problem with open source? by Dana Blankenhorn
I think it’s marketing. Over the weekend I proposed a Web ad campaign called “I am open source.” Picture big corporate users of GPL software, real business celebrities, and link to case studies. Show people that open source is not pushed by commie-fag-junkies, but by serious people with serious problems.
I shared this perspective with Paul Murphy. He disagreed. “I see Linux succeeding as a political movement but weakened by the lack of economic incentives,” he wrote. Open source has a business model problem, one which licenses like the CDDL can help solve, he added.
