Engineers using free and open source software created many of today's most innovative products and solutions. FOSS also changed the way we develop software. IEEE Software's Open Source column first appeared in this magazine in July 2004. In this last column, the editor revisits what we've learned over the past three years as 17 articles from 11 different authors (and companies) examined a dedicated FOSS component, tool, or product and reported lessons learned in selecting, implementing, and maintaining it.
