MySQL CEO: Partnerships Will Propel OSS Into Mainstream

In the business IT shop of the near future, open source software will gain equality with proprietary software, but it won’t get there on its own power, said Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL AB. “From the beginning, we have never been religious about open source. We think it’s the most effective way to produce software, but we’ve always realized that there are vendors that will stay with closed source products. Our users live in the real world where both open source and closed source software have to work together.
