"Obligatory read, even for those who are chronically closed to the "open" idea."
-- D. Murali, The Hindu Business Line

"If you need to figure out how much you can reasonably do with open source, or how to convince people to do that, and you’re dealing with people who think in traditional IT terms, this book will point you in the right direction and reassure you that it is possible and reasonable."
-- Elizabeth Zwicky, ;login:

"Open Source For The Enterprise is one of those books that you should see in a number of organizations, helping management and techies come together to make rational business decisions that benefit the company and not someone's resume."
-- Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

"… solid foundational reading for anyone who is involved in acquiring computer applications in any organization, in any operating environment…Open Source for the Enterprise should be read by CIOs, CTOs, and all who are or will be involved in the purchase of corporate software over the next few years. It contains honest, detailed information about the purchase and implementation of open source software."
--Robert Boardman, KickStart News, September 2005

"Authors Dan Woods and Gautam Guliani take the middle road in their book Open Source for the Enterprise, in that they neither tout open source as the long-sought panacea for IT departments struggling with shrinking budgets, nor spread a wet blanket of pessimism over open source as some writers on the subject have felt bound to do. Both authors have been users of open source software for more than 15 years, and in writing their book, they have sought the opinions of members of the open source community, IT departments and software companies alike."
