The Calm Before the Open Source Storm

,----[ Quote ]
| Companies who have previously relied upon software to generate revenue will 
| see financial decline if they take the open source road.  This decline 
| however is to be short lived and in the long run will prove to be a power 
| play that will pay off in the future and here is why.   
| 
| SUN Microsystems is a company who had previously generated alot of revenue by 
| selling hardware and the Solaris UNIX operating system.  A while ago, SUN 
| decided to take the leap toward the open source way of doing business.  This 
| has resulted in loss of revenue and declines in sales.  I have read articles 
| about the death of SUN on the New York Times website over the past few weeks.
