Computing from the bottom up

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux (and, more broadly, open source in general) is perhaps the canonical
| example of this trend. In some respects, Linux adoption just mimicked past
| adoption patterns for distributed computing in general--from Windows NT
| servers to PCs and even Unix in the early days. However, open source licenses
| make backdoor sourcing one big quantum step easier. Indeed, the basic idea
| that open source licensing helps to build a developer and user base that can
| then be monetized when the software goes into production underpins a lot of
| the thinking around business models associated with open source.
