Aras Open Source for Microsoft

We did a double take this week when we saw that Aras’ new Innovator 8 product lifecycle management suite was being touted in the media as “Microsoft enterprise open source” or “Microsoft-based open source.”

“Weird,” was the first thing that came to mind, followed shortly thereafter by, “Is that even possible?” This is, after all, the software company whose management once called open source a cancer, and at its fringes, the open source movement exists to do away with such proprietary software software shops.
