Free Software
It's interesting that all large software companies seem to be confined to one area each. Microsoft can't do much more beyond Windows/Office, Oracle specializes in databases, and SAP rules the business apps market. Only the free software world is growing - Linux, Firefox, Sugar CRM, MySQL - are all growing rapidly at once, feeding off of each other.


Only Apple (iPod, iTunes), Microsoft (XBox) and IBM (Services) seem diversified enough to take advantage of free software.
