Interesting post here on the Capgemini CTO blog, contemplating a future (if I read the post correctly) where licenced software products are a thing of the past.

It’s interesting in the fact that this has come from Capgemini, one of the big consultancies beloved of big business, are they ‘getting it’? This is where Open Source comes into it’s own, in value added services and support costs.

I am reminded by a statement from Mark Shuttleworth a few years back where he claimed that he saw the day some years in the future where the Open Source model would be the dominant model of software development and also delivery.
