What market reasearch is failing to show is that free software is winning. When I download Debian, no money changes hands, but when I put it on a hitherto unused and obsolete server and start serving a site off it, I am creating value.
Now this may all be a very recessionary development in economic terms, but it does not indicate a lack of progress, just a kind of change that people are having a hard time understanding and, therefore, profiting from.
