Slide Week: A Brief History of Open Source

Open source has apparently been around for 35 yrs according to this presentation.  There is no doubt how open source availability has changed the economics of enterprise software and helped fuel the growth of the cloud and this history of open source is very helpful to better understand how we got to where we are today in software. Many thanks to Francois Marier for putting this presentation which puts open source in a historical context.
