First, software ate hardware. Then open source ate software.
We now live in an open source economy.

Data shows that adopting open source has three times the impact on innovation compared to going it alone. Across industries, companies have turned business processes and hardware into software-defined assets to gain speed, increase innovation, and decrease costs. Today, the typical software stack is 70% open source.
