An Open Source Alternative for Vignette v8?

Vignette v8 is a next generation enterprise web content management tool. Previous versions of the product power some of the most sophisticated sites on the web. The latest release will be available later in 2009, however a video previewing Vignette v8 is already available. Based on this video it is safe to say that Sense/Net 6.0 already provides most of the functionality Vignette v8 introduces. See both videos - both the video on Sense/Net 6.0 and the video on Vignette v8 - and judge yourse... [More]

The future of Content Management and Sense/Net

Ad danger to open source?

I have just come across a post an ZDNet about how advertising can affect open source. It claims that open source can be in danger if closed source comapnies start campaigns against them.
