Open Source and Flower Children

I have contributed my share of sweat to the Open Source community over the past five years with emotionally rewarding stacks of thank you letters.  But I can't shake the feeling that Open Source movement is the return of 60's Flower Children, this time with a keyboard instead of a joint in their hands.  Open Source sounds right but smells wrong to me.  Between Microsoft monopoly and Open Source religion, I fear software market is between a rock and a hard place.

I am buying far less software now than 10 years ago.  How about you?
