Re: Ride OpenStack momentum
Agree, CobiaComm01, OpenShift will need to ride OpenStack Momentum and it's an open question whether it will have lots of support in doing that. Yes, integrate closely with OpenStack, provide middleware above and provide an easy to adopt option. I'm thinking Linux containers there, something that Red Hat will bring expertise to and specialize in. Will that be enough?

Ride OpenStack momentum
Maybe the most successfull PaaS project will be the project that integrates deeply with OpenStack underneath, with popular middleware above, and provides an easy-to-adopt option.

Does "Alive" really even matter?
Given open source, being "alive" isn't really a high bar. A much more interesting question is whether OpenShift gets significant adoption.

Open source debate: Is one PaaS enough?
I think we are too early in the process of creating cloud computing for anyone to be able to say, "There is just one open source PaaS." On the other hand, I remember Marc Fleury telling me that to be dominant in open source, as JBoss was in application servers, is to be even more dominant than a successful commercial product. Developers (and their sponsors) don't volunteer to create alternatives if a good one already exists. Which way will open Shift/Project Solum vs. Cloud Foundry go?

Agree with Charlie
"It will have to work in such a way that other companies and independent software developers sign up to help."

Red Hat has reserves of goodwill among developers that should help it here. And after all, what's the real costs to keep OpenShift breathing? Not so much, so why not stay the course.
