Open Source Starts Selling

| Comments

Here is an interesting article: ”The seven largest Open Source deals ever” that summarizes the top open source deals. On top we have of course MySQL, with the $1 billion deal from earlier last month. From the top deals, 2 were finalized this year (and we are just in the first days of February), 2 in 2007, and 1 in 2006 with the other 2 in 2003 and 1999. Looks like 2008 is a good year for open source ;-).
