Open up the source or Not.. That's the question
After writing my own management system, including somewhat radical ideas, and implementing it on a couple of projects, I now am deciding what to do.
I am able and willing to open up the source but then?
Questions that arise are:
Open up the source? What would I and the system benefit from this action? Will it scare of customers? Am I getting an extra restriction?
Keeping it to myself? How to get it promoted? But as it is mine I can do with it as I like.. Will I loose than benefit ?
In being a one man company I regularly get the comment that I am a too small company to be able maintain a system for a longer period of time and therefor are looking at other providers and there systems.
Would opening up the source and creating it as an Open Source project make me as a company stronger?
Anybody having Ideas suggestions experience in open source projects he/she started ? positive and negative are welcome!!!!!!!!!!
