[REBOL] The importance of dual-licensing
From: krobillard:san:rr at: 23-Apr-2004 13:57
Here's a good article titled "Why MySQL grew so fast":
Of particular interest is the section on dual-licensing.
"The other side of dual licensing is equally important. In terms of
adoption, open licenses do more for a software project than twenty thousand
billboards and glossy ads. The GPL allowed MySQL to penetrate millions of
sites that would never have otherwise known about it."
Someday I'd like to read an article titled "Why REBOL grew so fast".
On a somewhat tangential topic, has anyone been to the Mozilla site lately?
Very clean and professional. And they even offer phone support now! Too bad
there's no REBOL plug-in for Mozilla.
I know about half of the readers on this list understand the importance of
open source. I just find it curious that we have to drag the other half
kicking and screaming into the future...
