I beg to differ! Some people do read this stuff [even completely at random, with no intent to download].

While some people may read it, the fact that even the company name is spelled wrong means (at least to me) that not too many people read it, and certainly not very closely.

What about calling EnterpriseDB an Open Partner or Open Source Partner?
Thanks for the informative Podcast.

I still think that’s a bit too nebulous. Open Source “Partner” could be so many different things. What I’m looking for is succinct yet concise… which seems to also mean difficult to come up with.

Hi Jeremy!

You had such great interviews in the past on your show!
Will there be again some in the future?

Thanks for the feedback yangguan. We do plan to bring back the interview series to LQ Radio in the near future.

Hi Jeremy!

For sure a lot of other listeners miss the interviews too!
I heard them all:)

I am looking forward to the new shows.

It seems that you have been very busy the last months and your podcast did not get the full attention it deserves!

In my humble opinion your interviews had a fantastic atmosphere and a good balance between tec talk and an impression about the personality of your guests!

I think an Open Source Company is any company that produces an open source product. The fact that the same company may also produce a proprietary product should be irrelevant.

An Open Source Supporter is any company or individual that donates time, financial assistance, or practical assistance to the open source community, but produces no open source product. (I like the term in a previous responce “Open PArtner”, or “Open Source Partner”)

A Linux Compatible Company is any company that produces a product than can run on Linux, but is not Open Source. The cost of the product is irrelevant.

An Open Source product is any product licensed under the GPL.

My two cents :),

A product definitely doesn’t have to be released under the GPL to be Open Source. There are a variety of OSI-approved licenses that are not GPL-compatible.
