i wasnt implying any qualifications, but rather referring to the mentality

as businessmen/women, perhaps then the onus is to go out and create the 
demand. at the crux of it, companies need computing services and they need 
these needs met with quality and aptness. one possible reason why OSS 
companies are not succeeding at winning these pieces of the pie could be 
that they lack the capability to provide both quality and aptness and 
confine their "expertise" to just installation of linux on commodity 
hardware. this will definitely not make a good business model.
