   At the risk of being flamed, I must point out that Sun
   runs several FSBs.

Sun appears to manage several OSS projects -- not run a business
around that management (i.e., have a P&L against that management).

My stab at defining an FSB:

   A busines whose software aspect is 100% libre software, and that
   has a P&L based solely on at least one of: distribution of;
   training in use or mechanics of; support of; creation of; or
   management of said software.
