 > Most people don't care about software being Free or not, the code being  
opensourced or not. They just want to do their computing.

Owners of healthcare and online retail businesses in the US are feeling a lot  
of pain because of how frequently they've been exposed to hugely expensive  
data breaches due to the shoddiness and false promises from the vendors of  
the proprietary hardware/software stacks they use. They are beginning to care  
a great deal about whether or not their hardware and software stack can be  
audited thoroughly. IBM/RedHat, Oracle, Google and others are making enormous  
amounts of money from these customers by claiming "openness", even when they  
are really just offering a hybrid of libre and proprietary offerings.
