Great read, very informative.
Random question: Did it ever happen to see a software start as open-source, and then, for whatever reason, move to closed-source? Is it even possible? Did someone tried and (hopefully) failed miserably?
I feel like I've heard of cases, but I'm having a hard time remembering specific ones. I think OpenERP is, partially, an example of open-source-gone-closed. It's now known as Odoo, and they offer two forms of their product. One is still open source, and the other IIRC is not.
