    Wired magazine analyzed the Open Source phenomena in November of 2003 and stated that, “The revolution is in the method, not the result.”

    Business 2.0 magazine honored Open Source in its recent headline, “Open-source works for programmers and scientists. Now the rest of us should use it to turn our natural ingenuity into real products and services” in October.
