Nice article.......Quite interesting article....We can find algorithmic game theory ....Open source software is created mostly by interested individual contributors that take pride in the software they write. They also gain appreciation and respect from the software development community. Several large vendors such as Red Hat, Novell and start-ups like SpikeSource are attempting to provide open-source solutions that include pre-configured, easy-t0-install distribtutions and support for enterprises. But as Larry Ellison of Oracle recently pointed out they own little to no IP and other players can easily enter the market. Even if companies like IBM and Oracle have not entered the open-source market, the threat from new entrants due to low barriers of entry ruin the game for incumbents forcing them to keep prices low.

Hi, do you find any new resources for the subject? i want to write a paper about game theory and OSS for my OR class.

RE: John Newton's comment

Game theory is a branch of macroeconomics. It is of intermediate difficulty, so a general Econ degree, with a major in Games is possible. Post again if your interested in more.

Im very interested in the subject and was interested in studying at a collegiate level. I'm having trouble finding "game Theory" offered as a course of study. Do you know of its offering or would i have to study something along the lines of, public policy or economics?

A descriptive model is so much easier to create.

A predictive model may be possible if I were doing a PhD in this. However, there may not yet be enough data to create an _accurate_ predictive model.

In creating the original business plan, we created an adoption model based upon data from JBoss which is roughly accurate. At the moment our adoption rate is exceeding our expectations.

Why not a predictive model?
