Interesting. I don't think saving money or preventing lock-in will stand the test of time. Gold's comment may be more on target.

As to your (Alex) comments: You only save money if you don't purchase. Open source may be cheaper than a proprietary solution, typically, but I don't see why this would always stay like this.

As to preventing lock-in. Why? Open source is software so you get locked in whether open source or not. You are less locked-in for services, but only if you are talking about real community open source, not the common commercial open source we see more and more of every day.
