Open Source in 2005

What Execs Want To See from Open Source in 2005

1. Industry analysts and corporate managers will realize that Open Source programming libraries are of even greater importance than complete Open Source applications such as Linux.

2. Non-technology executives will realize that their companies already use much more Open Source than they think.

3. Non-technical executives will realize that their companies aren't using nearly as much Open Source as they should.

4. Executives (technical and non-technical) will realize that effectively managing Open Source use within their company is important. In fact, corporate execs may in fact finally become a strong Open Source ally (rather than an adversary).

5. 2005 will see significant growth in business-to-business Open Source projects.
