Red Hat flips CEO, as Microsoft 'goes' astroturfing

Adobe and MuleSource tune open source assault

Radio Reg MacWorld, MacWorld, MacWorld. Let those proprietary clowns play with their toys and false idols. We'll stick with open source decency - thank you very much - and dish out Episode 9 of Open Season.

As always, we had Alfresco's Matt Asay and Mulesource's Dave Rosenberg on the show. They're bloggers, but we'll forgive them. I was on the show too and didn't even plug my runaway bestseller.

Joining the fearsome punditry triumvirate was Adobe's open source guru Dave McAllister. The dude has a phone that meows. We provide proof.

Adobe Dave helped kick off the show by walking us through some of Adobe's open source efforts and intentions. He also revealed plans to make Creative Suite 4 a Linux-only product and to release it under GPL v3. Hahahahahaha. Yeah right. Still, Adobe Dave provided some nice insights into Adobe's open source work.

The four of us also dug into Red Hat's new CEO, the death of Chandler, Mulesource's fresh products and some upcoming open source conferences. The educational content was high as was our enthusiasm. Take that, Papa Chango.

You'll find the full show notes below. Please send in your emails by clicking on me name above or dish out comments on this lovely show page. Your opinions count - or at least that's what we'll claim in public.
