Is Commercial Software Dead?

Steve Borsch on how the commercial software sector is concerned about open source and all the messiness of Web 2.0:

"I've personally been witness to multiple millions of dollars worth of software and services expended on enterprise implementations that took years to come online and were wholly unsatisfying when completed. There is a constant and ongoing march toward eliminating inefficiency and making process more efficient (though governments often get in the way of that happening by changing incentives) which is being manifested right now with the onrush of the internet becoming the platform with Web applications on top.

Web 2.0 (...) delivers discrete functionality quickly."
