Hat Tip: Slashdot, From ComputerWorld:

Red Hat president and CEO Jim Whitehurst expects the enterprise open source software business to emerge from the economic crisis stronger than the proprietary market.
I could not agree more. But I don't think it is about open source vs proprietary. It is about cost savings and squeezing vendors more to save internal staff. We're seeing more and more large companies listen to the open source evangelists inside their companies about saving money by switching from expensive hardware tokens to a less-expensive open source two-factor authentication solution. In the end, though, people will think "Oh, we saved money going with an open source solution - let's look for other areas where we can that again."
