Adobe's new open source website

Open source doesn't come easily. The smallest steps actually take big efforts.

Adobe has announced a spiffy new website to focus on its open-source activities. Glyn Moody covers the announcement and implies that it's a welcome (but slow) move.

He's right. On both counts.

I lived through this at Novell. It is tremendously hard to move a company - culturally and in business model - to open source, even when everything points to open source as the solution to a company's struggles.

This might look like a small move for Adobe. But ask those involved in pushing the shift. I doubt it felt small for them.
