Open Source has won! Today, most open source developers work for commercial entities and the majority
of software and hardware vendors use open source software as key components in their commercial
offerings. In this talk we will look at some of the basic dynamics playing out in open source and introduce
some mental models explaining them. We will look at the Open Source Flywheel and the Open Source Community Funnel to explain them. We will make a very short excursion into common business models that companies playing in open source use and cover some of the risks that can occur when companies use open source components without fully understanding the potential impact.
