Growing acceptance of Open Source

The May 19, 2010 edition of Computerworld magazine contained a couple of articles about the growing evidence that one of the reactions to tightening budgets in software development has been the increased use of open source software and the associated  "Hidden Snags" It is clear that one of the attractions of open source is the availability of source code which is critical for integrating open source into the enterprise but this brings problems of its own ("Integration Jams").  I have written before about the benefits of static code analysis and I really want to stress the value of getting a one-off analysis done of any significant open source code that you bring into your enterprise.  Such a one-off analysis can be delivered as a service and does not require purchasing or learning a new tool.
