Computerworld takes a look why open-source is under-utilised in the graphics market:
There’s no shortage of open source programmers out there. According to a recent study of 5,000 developers by research firm IDC, 71% say they have used open source software, and half reported that use of open source is increasing within their organisations.
Outside of coding, however, few fields of endeavour have embraced open source practices on their own. Recently, I mentioned how Sun and others have begun experimenting with open source practices for chip design, but if you stray from the realm of computing, you’ll be hard-pressed to find examples of similar principles in practice.
