@hr21don thanks for thr article. It's a great topic. Problem is none of these projects alll that new and they have all been written up elsewhere for years. They are all very mainstream. I would love tonsee some more effort to give us new ideas that are not so trite.

Haters gon' hate πŸ˜… Sure, these projects have been around for a while. But it doesn't mean folks shouldn't be aware of them in 2023. The headline didn't lie πŸ˜…

How do open source projects fit into the broader landscape of the software industry, and how do they coexist with proprietary software and other types of projects?

This is such a big and foundational topic that if you know nothing about it you're probably better off starting with Google rather than a comment thread.

But in summary: Most commercial companies in the world will use one or more of those products (especial postgresql). So they're free, provided for free, survive through contributions (or occasionally extra paid for services), and yet provide much of the underlying value for every multi-billion dollar company out there, who rarely contribute back in any significant way.

That's the world we live in.

Because some businesses utilise and contribute to open source projects while still building private software for their specialised purposes or to make cash, open source and proprietary software can coexist.

How on Earth did you come up with this list? What on earth is exciting about any of these - maybe apart from opencv and netbeans. Why do you feel they are ones to watch for 2023?

Hi Bro,Each one is good on one front...some of these tools i worked/came across...if you would like to proceed on AI,ML space...OpenCV is good one to carry with...mainly on Image/Video Processing algorithms....Jenkins on CI/CD to maintain code integrations and delivery pathway.
MYSQL/PostgreSQL easier way of getting to know of Database structures, work on it in your local systems and it will help in workplaces as well.
Wordpress mainly for quick templating based website creations and much more.
Overall good to know of these tool based on your need
