Why Not Open Source?
People often ask why Wolfram doesn't use the open-source business model. The simple answer is that large-scale, unified design requires centralized control and sustained effort that we feel is less achievable with free and open-source software.
Check out this blog post by Director of Technical Communication & Strategy Jon McLoone, as well as a podcast featuring some of our senior developers and staff, for deeper discussions about why our design approach is essential to the technology we're building.
