The Open Source Paradigm Shift

Tim O'Reilly has an insightful essay about the open source paradigm shift that's happening. I've been thinking about the idea of the new operating system being the Internet itself. In that view, one can argue that many of the most important features of Microsoft's new operating system releases since Windows 95 have been designed to emulate Internet functionality originally created by open source developers. Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how this pans out.
