 Free Software and the Innovator's Dilemma

Several computer and technology companies are at a crossroads. Should they adopt the less-established (but growing) technology or the larger, more established (but shrinking) one? This crossroads is especially apparent with support of Linux.

John Zedlewski submitted the following editorial to osViews/osOpinion, which suggests that these companies at crossroads ought to adopt this growing "disruptive" tech now so that it doesn't look back in hindsight and realize that it lost what could have been a key advantage by being one of the early adopters.
