I've been doing a lot of research into how open-source software can and can't be used in Enterprises. In January, I wrote a post called "Is the LAMP Stack Appropriate for Enterprise Use?" That looked into conditions that using it may be a good idea.
I was inspired this morning when reading a blog post about 21 popular brands that use wordpress. Wordpress is an open-source content management platform based on PHP, and I was blown away to learn that eBay, Yahoo, Ford, and the Wall Street Journal all use wordpress in the architectures of their externally-facing blogs
Who would have thought?
