I’ve been hearing much about stacks these last few weeks.
We want an all ESRI stack
We want to break out of the ESRI stack
I want an all OSGeo stack
Bill Gates’ stack is the work of the devil
I want to avoid the [INSERT LEAST FAVORITE SOFTWARE COMPANY HERE] stack at all costs
Why concern yourself with branding stacks? OK, maybe if your corporate IT department dictates that you must go a route you have to worry about it, but otherwise concerning yourself with an overarching stack just distracts you on matching your needs with the best hardware/software. Stack away, but focus on the individual parts, not the whole suite. Leave the marketing terms such as LAMP/WAMP/XXXX to others and pick what works.
Be careful with stacks
