Business or Pleasure? - why not both: The product-to-service.

In big IT companies, there isnt much enthusiasm to be found for selling Open Source products. It's really hard to measure it all, and it doesn't help that SAP and Oracle offer what i call "future lock-in": the money spent on it all runs in the millions and all that won't even start to pay back or ROI well within years from now. Even if you are implementing an Open Source the cost is very high because the projects have the same kind of problems.
