It's Happening

It's gratifying and a bit scary to see your own predictions starting to come true. Here are a few headlines from the past week:
  • Oracle will start certifying open source applications.
  • IBM is buying GlueCode and getting involved with Apache's Geronimo project.
  • Microsoft's Steve Ballmer met with Red Hat's Szulik.
The general convergence of open source and traditional software vendors is already happening, and it will continue. It's really just a matter of time before open source becomes a part of the mainstream.
