| As Dina writes, many software companies have been dealing with the
| global software piracy problem in a very punitive manner. Open source
| changes that.
|
| If markets like Ukraine and Russia and China and India begin adopting
| open source options at a furious clip, there could come a day when
| the U.S. market leaders aren't leaders outside their local market.
| Not only would the "price" be more economically acceptable, but the
| source code (in theory) would include coding philosophies and
| features more tuned to the local market. And then, software piracy
| will be the least of the big ISVs' problems.
