    The threat of open source web application software has led the software giant to produce smaller, cheaper versions of some of its tools.

    Open source is kind of letting outsider to spam you, but carefully you can workout this OS code as per your requirement. For the large organisation they wouldn't care much about Open Source so on the scale of smaller companies this is still alive and it is good thing the major vendor has to change and comply to the features available on the similar product.

    I like Open Source. Read this.http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/4.1/installer.html
    Even MS is going partially open source.

    quote:
    ...
    Further, Microsoft has introduced the WiX (Windows Installer XML) toolset recently. It is the first, highly acknowledged Open Source project from Microsoft. We switched to WiX for two reasons. First, it is an Open Source project and second, it allows us to handle the complete Windows engineering process in a flexible way with scripts.
