Re: AT&T's Open Source Vision
@Mike, great interview.  I like AT&T's understanding of open source as a spectrum and unlimited options for development and applications.  I think that distinction is also what limits some who like to follow existing developments only and/or are uncomfortable with open systems. 

They will soon learn that the space for restricted and limited developments are a shrinking piece of the pie.

Open Source Attacks
Open Source software can offer and function to do many things so I think they can take almost any challenge. There will be a lot more to come from this.

Yes, operating expenses are lower and easier to control as you move along the open-source spectrum.  That is why the world is going more and more open-source.  Pretty much everything in the interview is true, but is it really news other than to upper management?

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
I agree, it's not breaking news, but he felt it was important enough to include in a presenation to vendors, analysts and service provider employees. But it was just one element of a very deep dive. I found it interesting, but your mileage varies, I suppose. Check out Carol's story on the second-generation of VNFs for more deplth.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
I always thought for OEMs this structure was enormously profitable. 

That being said, switching to open standards opens the box versus keeping it closed. It could be the end of a lucrative opportunity for some vendors.

DCawrey,

Well, it's the end of a lucrative arrangement for vendors who wouldn't be voluntarily chosen by clients in an even contest. But those are the ones that are likely to pass unmourned.

I agree, open source will bring companies with customers in mind closer to their users and those without away. The free market favors the best.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
Shaunn, batye,

Oh, I wouldn't go as far as saying the free market favors the best. It's more like evolution -- DISfavor matters more than favor. Many grotesquely inferior and second rate companies survive for generations. What does happen, though, is that those that nobody would buy if they weren't forced into it vanish very quickly when whatever has been forcing customers into their grasp goes away.

Right on, it's not about how good the good is necessarily, but why anyone would even buy the worst.
