A little late to the party, I got time to write a blog entry of this important event. The announcement actually happend on monday the 25th october 2010.
Rob has explained the background along with Larry's interview and Dana's podcast much better than I could have.
From a personal perspective I'm really excited about the future of FuseSource; we're growing fast, have some amazing customers & a great team including the folks who created Apache ActiveMQ, Apache Camel and Apache ServiceMix; and now we have autonomy so we can stay nimble & fast like a startup while we innovate and iterate to help our customers solve their integration problems with open source; all the while having the security of being backed by a large company. This is gonna be fun! :)
