This chapter discusses the framework that will be used in the analysis of open source software (OSS) adoption. This framework is based on Victor Gallivan's longitudinal research into the deployment of innovative client-server technology that reviewed the major traditional frameworks of technology adoption. The chapter explains the rationale for choosing this framework, including the components behind the framework and their relevance in an OSS context.

Keywords:   OSS adoption, framework, Victor Gallivan, client-server technology, technology adoption
