Ecstatic about OStatic.com

About Ostatic: Our goal is to increase the adoption of Open Source Software by helping users find viable projects and applications that fulfill specific needs, evaluate them against available alternatives and collaborate with their network of trusted peers.

What I really liked about OStatic.com was that they really do a very good job of comparing proprietary and open source products. Their posts are very relevant and contemporary which I think is a major requirement in the Open Source World! OStatic is part of the famed GigaOM Network. Definitely quality stuff.

I have been following its post for the past few days and enjoyed reading them a lot. The latest as I write is on Hadoop, something which me and my friend have been bantering about for sometime. Hadoop is something which I believe will in many ways turn the growth of future computing. Hearing about Hadoop on OStatic, shows to me a maturity on Open Source topics and knowledge of future trends which would be usually a bit hard to capture (more so when we are talking about the Open Source world)

The Software section with each open source item marked with a and the proprietary one with is my favorite. Visit this section and if possible contribute to the alternatives if you know one.
