In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

"The Internet created - and creatively destroyed - great wealth. It also created a culture legitimizing intellectual property theft. When you defend intellectual property, you speak an unpleasant truth. People don't like to hear unpleasant truths. The alternative to this fight, however, is the death of an industry and thousands of jobs lost."

Darl McBride, discussing the content of his Enterprise IT Week/Computer Digital Expo keynote address, titled "There's No Free Lunch -- Or Free Linux," in which McBride will lay out his assertion that without paid software, there would be little or no free software.

[Excerpt from an interview with Clayton Christensen:]
Investor's Business Daily: What other disruptive technologies do you see?

Christensen: In data storage, companies like Network Appliance and Veritas are disruptive to the big storage technology providers (by creating cheaper products and services). The University of Phoenix Online is disruptive to traditional universities. I consider the RIM Blackberry a disruptive technology. The Linux operating system and eBay are classic new market disruptors. (by offering pay-as-you-go business software online) is disrupting Siebel Systems, which has been disruptive to Oracle and SAP.

IBD: How do you know when you see disruption?

Christensen: When you see consolidation among players at the high end of a market, it's a signal that disruption is well under way. When I see Oracle (bidding to buy) PeopleSoft, it's a signal that in their ERP world resource management software, which runs many business operations, the disruption is already under way.

In another market, there were 300 full-service department stores 30 years ago. Then discounters disrupted them. There are only 16 department store companies left.

IBD: Why is Linux disruptive?

Christensen: Linux... signals the beginning of commoditization. In the past, popular operating systems have been proprietary and interdependent.

IBD: Should Microsoft be worried about Linux?

Christensen: Linux is very disruptive to Microsoft. To their credit, Microsoft has a bunch of disruptive attacks of their own under way.

"Linux is an opportunity for us to make a breakthrough in developing software. But the market cannot be developed on a large scale without government support."

Gou Zhongwen, a vice minister at China's Ministry of Information Industry, discusses the Chinese government's plan to invest heavily in a Linux-based software industry. The amount of the government's investment was not specified. Software sales in China are estimated to reach $30.5 billion in 2005, according to International Data Corp.
