It seems that the fuller range of benefits of the OSS development model
are now becoming clear to a much wider audience. The price of FLOSS is
obviously compelling on its own, but what's making the difference is
much more than just the price. The debate is turning towards what FLOSS
is /worth/ to a company, not what it costs.
