That's actually what I was saying.  Granted "OSS mindset" isn't the best
way to put it.  Our economy is strong by an insane drive to be
successfull and make lots of money.  We compete not because we see a
flaw in an existing product or service and wish to better it out of the
goodness of our hearts.  We see that weakness and jump on it to make
ourselves more money.  That is what causes industry to progress.
