Open source is a win for companies

Correction, Open source is a Win (for Windows) for companies.

In the case of Microsoft (but there are other evils around here), Microsoft is using open source as a stepping stone, and, at the same time, is joining its ranking (Linux Foundation) and Microsoft is still demanding and harassing Linux companies.

I learn some lawyer that says (years ago) that, at this pace, Linux will be owned by privates. How any license works?. Is it your sign or name in the license?. No, then it is not your work. Collaborators, yes they worked but that's it.

Anyways, Open Source is not my religion.
