IBM , Sun Microsystems and other technology companies recently "donated" portions of their software to the open-source community. But those donations are not motivated by corporate generosity; there are tactics and strategies behind these moves.

"Vendors will use open source as a competitive weapon, by open-sourcing pieces of technologies for strategic reasons," David Smith, a vice-president at Gartner, told NewsFactor.

"Most vendors will use open-source tactics as needed, as part of overall software strategies. Few will have completely open-source oriented strategies."
