Open source software continues to capture the interest of information technology professionals. Open source evoked the notion of a large, active community of developers. Large meant two or three people who did the heavy lifting and dozens who held on to the coattails of the committers (that's open source jargon for the programmers who make direct changes to the innards of a program). Finally there was the notion of open source becoming widely used in the enterprise and on heavily trafficked Web sites. There are downsides to open source search and content processing systems. Open source search is not well-understood by many technical professionals in large organizations. It's time to pay attention to open source search in general.
