Thanks for the interesting comments.

I'm not saying that investment in open source won't continue, but I do wonder where it will go. At the moment, we are typically seeing one leading company in each sector: MySQL for databases, Alfresco for ECM, SugarCRM for CRM etc. So what happens if they all get taken over? Is it possible to launch another open source database and succeed, or does first-mover advantage mean that MySQL has filled that slot? If not, will there be enough significant new sectors to allow open source companies to become anything more than minor players?
