10 questions to ask when selecting open source products for your enterprise

Was recently invited to write an article to TechRepublic on their "10 things" articles on 10 questions to ask when selecting open source products for your enterprise. This is also based on the research I am doing at Virtusa on Open Source maturity models and governance. I wrote this as a brief guide for enterprises when selecting Open Source products and it basically covers 10 checks you should make on an Open Source project to better assure you are realizing the benefits that have been promoted by Open Source. By no means is it supposed to be comprehensive, but here are my personal tips as somewhat of an Open Source insider on how you can select between suitable Open Source products.
