Close on the heels of open sourcing the Red Hat Satellite as the Spacewalk project, today we see the other product, JBoss Operations Network getting open sourced as JOPR (pronounced jopper). There is even an embedded jopr as well. Yet again, Red Hat leads the world in both thought and action in redefining the way enterprises and individuals consume technology.
Obligatory contrast: Our friends from Redmond went on a piracy rampage with their self-styled “World Anti-piracy Day” on October 21. What an innovative way of endearing themself to anyone. The MS front office, Business Software Alliance I am told is going around doing the MS deed. If there is ANYONE who has been threatened by the MS/BSA mafia, please, please, introduce them to open source solutions. There is a way out.
