    Question Businesses and open-source

    Ok. Iíve been reading a lot about the competition between Microsoft and Linux and how Linux being open-source and basically free, is really posing a threat to their income. What I have been trying to figure out is how a company can produce software and it not be threatened by open-source software, and also how a company can produce open-source software and still get some kind of an income to keep the business running. I was wondering what you all think about this. Thanks ahead of time for your opinions.

    I think Linux did good implementation than microsoft did .. i dunno much about trading , bussiness and all of thiese thing. The competition will continue for long long time ( i think ) and each of them will try to complete their minus and will give more advantage to the user. we will see who will win , and who will be the last standing company.
    I use Miscrosoft rather than Linux, it's not becoz of i don't like it. but becoz in here ppl use microsoft ( most of them ) than Linux And Linux has sold the product with quiet cheap but the ppl still looking for microsoft . i dunno why , i just try to adapt with what they use.
    i hope it is not wrong.
