err this I believe is a one-way thing (i think that is what he means).
Linux can of course compete with a commercial os, and possible steal all
of that os's customers causing it to run into the ground. A commercial
product is not going to cause the linux programmers to go bank-rupt
though since they are not being paid to work on linux in the first
place. I believe that was the point.
