Some vendors
Some vendors must not be happy about open source solutions making switches to other vendors easier to do, as in the example given where an upgrade to 200G may be more easily done when open source is used, and when a current vendor does not offer such an upgrade.

Re: Some vendors
Yes, there's certainly going to be some vendors out there furrowing their brows wondering just how to compete with open source. While as noted there's still some significant potholes in the road, i.e.  how you go about "changing management systems, how you deploy spares, how you train your people."

Re: Some vendors
@donbrowne those are considerable challenges. However, I do think the payoff will, ultimately make it worth addressing them all.

Re: Some vendors
I think the transparency of open source is just too compelling, maybe harder for rogue programmers to hide back doors in open source.

Which is incredibly important when security continues to be a hot-button issue.

Re: Some vendors
@afwriter True. Security has historically been an issue with "open source," the way companies resisted going to the cloud for that reason. Many companies are just not ready to make that leap.

Re: Some vendors
Companies never seem to want to make change. They feel safer with proprietary software.

Re: Some vendors
Whenver something is free, it has its' pitfalls--the key, of course, is to make sure the due dilligence is done on a constant and consistent basis.

Re: Some vendors
Yes, it's of course well said that when you get something for free, you get what you pay for. There's usually something unsaid in a offer of free stuff, or at least in the fine print. It's usually better to pay a fair price for something of value or be willing to settle for the fine print agreements to give up something in return.

What is critical is what you noted:  fairness--the problem is what is defined as fairness and how it should be actually judged by.

Re: Some vendors
@John: Except that assumes that all code gets equal attention.

Open source has become renowned for attracting devs who are more feature-focused and security-focused. That's how major security bugs like Heartbleed were able to be inserted into open-source code (albeit inadvertently) and stick around for years upon years.

Re: Some vendors
@Don: As the mega-companies have realized, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Thus the proliferation of major sponsorships and contributions -- to the point of being such a guiding hand that it borders on control -- of major companies like, say, Microsoft, Google, and big telcos.
