An Open Source Paradox

Once again I ‘m facing a weird dilemma. Our company (Farata Systems) has created yet another piece of great software that allows fast and smooth work with large sets of data in Flash Player. For example, a datagrid with 200K records works like charm with our lazy loaded collection. But this solution is not so trivial to explain. If we give it away to the open source “as is “, people will start having issues with it and will start bad mouthing us publicly. On the other hand, we don ‘t have time and resources to properly document this solution. It ‘s a lot easier to offer this solution for sale as a short gig to all these filthy rich Wall Street firms 🙂

Over the weekend, I will record and publish the video to at least show this solution in action.
