I recently had the chance to talk with Dave McCrory and Patrick Chanezon, both senior staff at VMware, about Cloud Foundry and why they took the strange route of going Open Source. How can you ever make money that way?
Dave and Patrick talked about how they had the first community bug fix pull requests within the first day of releasing Cloud Foundry to the Open Source community. After a year in the Open Source realm they feel Cloud Foundry has matured far quicker than it ever could have otherwise.
What do you think? Is VMware better off for making Cloud Foundry Open Source?
