The article in eWeek with the title above really doesn’t answer the question that is asked. It really answers the question, “Is open source dying in the public sector?” In California and Massachusetts, the state experiments that intend to use open source are evidently going badly. As one quote from the article says,
Sources close to the situation tell me that former state CIO Peter Quinn’s resignation happened at least in part because of delaying tactics by vendors who publicly support open source but do their best to scuttle it behind the scenes.
I don’t think the article supports the idea that open source might be in jeapordy in the larger market.
