Open Source Report: Nokia releases Python S60 source code
- But all that's changed and there are some open source players that are
themselves big IT vendors. Take IBM, for example, as they don't get

open source seriously. The fact that Nokia surprised few industry
watchers when it released the source code for its Python for S60
Platform software package shows just how far the credibility of the
global community of open source software developers has jumped over
the past few years.
Nokia's move to place the source code of Python for the Symbian-based
S60 Platform up on SourceForge.net illustrates in spades that open
source software development is no longer niche, but is now firmly part
of the enterprise mainstream.For more details, click this link:
