— read up on what we've been up to lately
I just saw a tweet from Jeff Potts, Chief Community Officer at Alfresco pointing to an article on CMSWire.com in which the CEO of Univa, Gary Tyreman, claims that proprietary software is safer, less bug free than Open Source Software. In fact, Tyreman goes as far to say:
"I’ve used them [Open Source Software] for personal projects at home, and I’ve even tried them at my own company," he admits. But he qualifies the second half of his sentence by pointing out that it was for an application which wouldn’t affect his company’s top or bottom lines. Besides, he adds, he has since replaced it with an internally written application anyway.
"You certainly can’t use Open Source for something that’s the lifeblood of the company," reiterates Tyreman.
