  3. 3. it encourages the creation of open standards. </li></ul>The OER's, too.
  4. 4. Comparison of FOSS/OER's The open source has a high yield, where (a) reliability / stability / scalability are critical, and (b) the correction of the design and implementation is not easily verified by means other than independent peer review. The OER's, too.
  5. 5. Comparison of FOSS/OER's The free software is interest to consumers by their desire not to depend a monopoly in providing services. With the OER's happening to the contrary. Some people believe that using them means relying on a repository (future monopoly) is same.
  6. 6. Comparison of FOSS/OER's Market pressure (syllabus?) and product evolution can critically change benefits (results). It is not the case of OER's because it not subject to market rules.
  7. 7. Models of sustainable FOSS/OER's Cooperative (Apache), sharing costs. Can be applied to OER's. Protection against the loss of developers (Cisco). Not is applicable to the OER's. Indirect sales . Not is applicable to the OER's. Loss-Leader/Market: Positioner (subscription / advertising). Can be applied to OER's.
  8. 8. Models of sustainable FOSS/OER's Widget frosting : Provide free software enables consumers to their loyalty (OCW). Can be applied to OER's. Charging support services , value added (Cygnus, Read Hat). Can be applied to OER's. Sales of accessories for free software. Can be applied to OER's. Mixed: sale now, and after free. Can be applied to OER's.
  9. 9. Models of sustainable FOSS/OER's Speculative : creating source, release, creating an environment for accreditation and sell the brand (Sun). Can be applied to OER's.
