Open Source is Disruptive

In the Open Source D-Word Dissection Russel Pavlicek argues that Open Source is disruptive, not destructive, and concludes:

"The task of the software industry is to create the best business solutions. The advent of open source means that the cost of some of the components has dropped, while the control over them increases for the solutions integrator and the IT department. From a market perspective, the major difference is that the point of greatest profit shifts from the software provider to the service provider."
