Open source vendors...monopolies waiting to happen?

OSS

Roy Russo wonders if all open source companies are de facto monopolistic. Like many others that I respect (Dave Rosenberg, Lonn Johnston, President Bush, Oscar the Grouch), Roy believes that any market only has (ultimate) room for one purveyor of free (as in software). He writes:

So much for peace, love, and [open source].
