When AOL Starts Striking Open Source Poses…

By - June 04, 2005

AolYou know this idea’s got legs. From Slashdot:

BetaNews says that AOL is open sourcing Winamp AVS and Milkdrop, two popular Winamp plug-ins, and its Ultravox streaming media platform (the successor to Shoutcast). ‘Despite helping to launch the Mozilla Foundation and releasing the code to its AOL Server software, America Online has never been synonymous with open source. But a number of new initiatives could change AOL’s proprietary image, as the company strives to reach a broader audience on the open Web.’

Look for news of AOL’s new open web launch shortly…
