Here's a recent bit from Doc "Cluetrain" Searles along these lines.  It is in 
response to the Novell acquisition of SuSE, but outlines very succinctly 
those things represented by Linux/Apache/etc. that are outside the scope or 
interest of MS or /any/ vendor.

|   Linux isn't a vendor product. Never was, never will be. It's not even
|   a product. It's a project by a development community that includes
|   many vendors but isn't driven by any of them. Same goes for other
|   members of the LAMP suite, with the single exception of MySQL, which
|   owns the code (making it, in that sense, proprietary) but locates
|   development squarely inside the community rather than in its own
|   corporate container. In other words, they are very			
|   unvendor-like--market-compliant, I'd say.
|
|  Development communities like Linux's grew out of the need to do what|
|   vendors couldn't do or wouldn't do. That doesn't make vendors bad or
|   anything; it just puts them in perspective. They can't do everything,
|   and now they don't have to.
