May 25, 2007

“One of the survivors of the early days of Linux has changed its name and folded its software division in favor of doing business entirely on the Web.VA Software Corp.Thursday said it has changed its name to Sourceforge Inc. and will focus the company exclusively on its Web properties, such as the site that hosts open-source projects and the Slashdot news aggregation site, which is popular with technology enthusiasts.

The company said the moves are in response to the dynamics of Web 2.0, the new business model in which traditional software is beginning to give way to advertising-funded Web-based services.”
