Revolution OS

I have watched “Revolution OS” [film] [site] and walk away with mixed feelings.  I agree whole-heartedly with Richard Stallman’s philosophical view of Free Software and it is almost laughingly evident that the opensource business platform is not the superstar business model that uninformed business analysts thought it was.  From $300+ a share to $3 a share in one quarter, WOW.  But if it wasn’t for this opensource business model we wouldn’t have the corporate backing that these projects benefit from.  Mozilla might never have existed.  Sun wouldn’t have opened StarOffice.  Much is dependant on the economic value of the support for the code.
