    Why move my application to Open Source

    I'm leaving the education sector and my town for the bright lights of London and for this reason I’m worried that all my hard work I’ve put into an application will be wasted. I would like your help on providing good reasons to make this application open-source which I hope could be uploaded to edugeek as a leaving present. This application is being developed at work and in my spare time!

    The application does the following:

    Batch (In AD)
    Create User
    Move Users
    Delete Users
    Set Password
    Enable/Disable users
    Set group memberships in AD
    Get system information from all computers in a domain
    Open remote PC C drive
    Launch RDC or VNC to a remote PC
    Batch
    Shutdown, Restart, Reboot a remote PC
    GPupdate on remote PC

    I will have your babies. Is that a good enough reason?

    What's the app written in? I'm sure if you gave some details there would be plenty of people with the relevant skills that would come forward to help maintain it.

    What language is it in? How good is your working relationship with the head, can you get a source release signed from him/her? What kind of license are you looking at?

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but wondered if you actually went anywhere with this?
