The coming 'open monopoly' in software

Author: JT Smith

"...in an open-source monopoly the barriers to participation and
influence will disappear. This will be a different kind of monopoly--an "open monopoly"--from
which no vendor can be excluded from participating, including the big companies now joining the
open-source movement. They have much more to gain by breaking the existing monopoly and
replacing it with the new open monopoly." From CNET News.com.
