Time for an Open Source Strategy

In looking at the state of things right now, economically speaking, has there ever been a time better suited for adoption of open source?

I don't think so. Given today's economic situation, closed source license and maintenance fees can choke off the air supply of any business. I know from personal experience, having to cut budgets many times over the years when I was in IT, maintenance fees on closed source software always adds up to a significant amount of money in the enterprise. If you find yourself in that situation, and you have been on the sidelines where open source adoption is concerned, its time to get off the sidelines and into the game!

If you want specific advice in adoption of open source technologies, please don't hesitate to post here.

Good luck to everyone in these very tough economic times.
