Not surprisingly, consolidation continues in the new year. NewsFactor Network reported Sunday that EMC, through its subsidiary Decho, has acquired open source support provider SourceLabs.

 

Open source observers like Tech Crunch's Robin Wauters and CNET News blogger Matt Asay say they can't really put a finger on why a storage giant like EMC would even want to own SourceLabs. Wauters suggests it may have something to do with the open source documentation project SourceLabs manages, called SWik. Asay, however, is not convinced. He says:

I'm guessing that EMC didn't buy SourceLabs for Swik.net, given that the company had been contacting potential buyers just a few weeks ago to gauge interest in buying Swik.net, likely because EMC wasn't interested in that part of SourceLabs' business.
I'll definitely keep an eye on this one.
