I wouldn't like to see the list get quite that narrow, but I do
have a related idea to suggest.  I would like to see some case
studies of successful companies which rely on and/or support
Free Software.  Here are some possibilities:

   Apple
   Cygnus
   IBM
   O'Reilly
   Red Hat

All of these firms predate (and most survived) the .COM boomlet.

What can we learn from them?
