Business Week has great round up of their open source stories for 2005 along with predictions for '06.

Here's my favorite quote:
"It took them a long time to realize if you don't open-source and you're not a market leader, you're dead," says Peter Yared, CEO of open-source startup Active Grid and a former Sun executive.


I have one beef, which is a constant in financial reporting:
On Dec. 22 it announced stellar third-quarter earnings, with revenues up 43.6%, to $73.1 million, and profits up 114%, to 12 cents per share.

Why switch from total revenue to earnings per share? How do you find out the margins they are making? Up 114% from what? Per share? Did the numbers of share increase or decrease? Argh!
