Lots of discussion on the cloud and open source (liferay), here’s how I’m seeing the tradeoffs this morning.  Please critique in your comments.

    The problem with this is that ‘open source’ is too broad. There is plenty of open source that is very ‘standardized’. Linux today isn’t what it was 10 years ago. I think the progression is also a little out of order. I would put it “Open Source -> Cloud -> on site / proprietary vendor” since I would argue that the cloud now offers more flexibility than vendor provided software even when running that sw on site.
