eBay acquires Magento

eBay agreed today to buy Magento, the impressive suite of e-commerce.

The Magento blog states that

eBay is evolving to become a strategic commerce partner (…). As a centerpiece of this strategy, they are building a global, open commerce platform that leverages the worldwide developer community. And Magento will be at the core of this new, open commerce platform, called “X.Commerce.”

There are no comments about the future openness of Magento’s source code, which was one of the key factors for Magento’s wildly successful adoption.
