RED HERRING | Q&A: David Skok on JBoss Deal

"The world of open source changed Monday with the acquisition of JBoss in a deal worth up to $420 million.

JBoss├»¿½s open source middleware, which is the glue that connects operating systems to applications, is a cheap alternative to license-based middleware from software providers such as IBM, Oracle, and BEA Systems."
