Imagine what could be done with it in an open source community [...]

I'm guessing pretty much the same thing the greater OSS community does with Symbian or GEM... (or maybe, at best, with Allegiance or Warzone 2100 - just two "closed -> OSS" games I'm familiar with; the first one from Microsoft, BTW)

...not so much what happens with Blender, id game engines, Star Office, or Mozilla (hm, maybe some pattern emerges here, maybe closed -> open OS have a harder time for some reason; I think the biggest success of such is Solaris, and this one's still a bit 50/50; now that I think about it, id engines are a bit similar - sure, fun tech, used here and there for nice things, but relatively limited overall impact)
