We covered:

Open source verses freeware

Open source software can be developed feely

Start a community on the new development

Grow a base of developers

A completely different product may result

The Mambo vs. Jooma was given

The role of community in developing open source software was highlighted

The CINDEOS CMS vs. site@schools example was given
