Take the 2014 Future of Open Source Survey

Every year for the past seven years, a consortium of software companies has collaborated to conduct a survey on attitudes and adoption of open-source software in business. 35 open-source companies have collaborated on this year's survey, including the Open Software Initiative, RedHat, SUSE Linux, and Revolution Analytics, and the 2014 Future of Open Source survey is now open.  As always, the results of the survey will be made public in a webinar on April 3. You can view the results of the 2013 survey below. If you use open source software, share your thoughts about its benefits, challenges and future in the survey here: 2014 Future of Open Source Survey. The survey is open until March 5.     https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014-future-open-source
