@LovesTha dunno if I agree with your conclusion. I ran a software dev shop for 14 year, and we only created open source software... It's a viable proposition. What's more, if people (rightly) rejected the use of proprietary software (due to the aforementioned power imbalance... It'd be the only viable option.
@lightweight That a company can survive/thrive creating open source software isn't proof that all software can be, just that some can be (and anyone trying to claim that foss is impossible for all software has some reality to check)
