"The report identifies the value of these 'open source' products
to be about 6% of the world market for software. Unfortunately, the
Standish Group doesn't believe in openly sharing its research,
instead selling it for $1,000…I have held for a long time
that the free software ethos means that you should be making money
out of what you are doing, not what you have done. If this research
group can sell a piece of paper of $1,000, maybe we can make a bit
of money out of consulting."
