What is NOT Vendor Lock-In

It is summed up in the following statement:

If Coke stops satisfying me for even a moment, I’ll switch

But to what are you going to switch? If you have to switch software, then you are lost. You want to switch vendors but keep the software.

  • To fire your vendor, you need to co-own your software.

  • To co-own your software you need a solid FOSS license.

  1. Consensus. I usually use that word instead of collaboration. Decisions are made by consensus in an open source world. You start from where you agree and work outward, rather than starting from where you disagree and working inward.

  2. I agree decisions by consensus, but progress by collaboration, coordination and constructive competition.
