Open source does not necessarily mean what you do will be done or can be done by everybody else. Does it? Ultimately one could say that whatever functionality implemented by a code could be done by anybody else. Once that beat or that melody is out there one could use it to create something else.
From the past, Red Hat has also touted open source. You don’t think they have had a business?
If you argue that the issue is them being ‘open source’ and you look at the stock movement then why is Mongo going up and Elastic not in recent months?
What do you think will happen after the lock-up?
