He wants to explain CIOs but avoids to explain why many companies shut their doors after investing into producing OS software, including many major Linux / other software sellers.

Most of the closed-source and propriatory contracting companies I've worked for have went out of business or have stumbled from the glory days they used to have over the years. Come to think of it, most businesses -- software or not -- go out of business over a 10 year period. Singling out OSS sellers on this is a little harsh.

He avoids to explain if OSS has a life on its own of that is just synthetic because of dollars pumped by weknowwho.

Nope. Enlighten me.
