Its the community, not the source
"What's really interesting about open source companies is not particularly the fact that we give away our source code. It's not the source code that's magic here. What I think is real impressive is the community and the value of that community." says Mike Olsen, CEO of Sleepycat in a recent interview. That fits well with the article I have written for the EOSJ - its exactly the argument I make when I discuss what the community is and how enterprises can evaluate communities.
