Open Source (Still) Seeds the Startups

,----[ Quote ]
| It's become fairly well recognised that after the dotcom crash, the next wave 
| of startups naturally turned to open source as a way of getting going without 
| much money. Since then, the LAMP stack and variants thereof have provided the 
| basis of practically every important Web 2.0 company – I believe that MySpace

| deployment of 13,000 Fedora Linux systems from a government grant, plans are 
| underway to roll out another 10,000 based on Ubuntu.
