As I’ve been preparing for my Open Source Licensing talk today, I’ve been struck by how many F/LOSS projects have a .org and a .com side.

For Course Management Systems, Moodle operates in development mode as a .org and in a support and certification mode as a .com.

For Customer Relationship Management, SugarCRM also operates as a community development site .org and a service and support and packaged product site as a .com.

In Network Management, OpenNMS is a community supported project as a .org and in its commercial mode acts as steward of the project while providing training, professional services and support.

Others?

    Let’s not forget MySQL. They feature both a mysql.org for their software and documentation and mysql.com for their enterprise business.
