A prominent company has talked to me with regards to moving their product away from their current traditional proprietary software business model and making it either freeware or free software/open source.
I'd prefer not to mention the company name or exact field but I wonder if people could summarise the advantages of freeing ones software and what this can encourage as opposed to simply giving it away at no cost.
If I can clarify anything, please say and I'll see what I can say..
I'll let you know which they choose in the end - when it's publicly announced.
If each of us have one object, and we exchange them, then each of us
still has one object.
If each of us have one idea, and we exchange them, then each of us now
has two ideas. - George Bernard Shaw
