You Can’t Make Money With Linux/FOSS

Remember that ‘ole line?

After I read an intresting article about Red Hat’s market Cap just about to surpass Sun’s I wondered if that same mentality is as pervasive as it once was.

This old notion shold be dead by now considering the adoption and clear embrace of “opening up” (at least open more than ever before) by companies such as IBM, Sun itself, and a host of others. Presented with market data bean counters love, such as the information linked, I think we can finally say what we long time Linux/FOSS zealots have known for years. At the time of this post Red Hat’s Market Cap was 2.64B while Sun’s was 2.1B (Jan 23, 2009 @ 1035 ET)

In the spirit of our newly elected president’s slogan … Yes We Can!

More accurately … Yes We Did, Yes We Do, Yes We Will, Make Money With Linux/FOSS!
