Thats not what the whole point is about. Its not about who uses open
source internally. A company is not going to look at open source
contributions from prospective employees and college students so that
they can effectively check their company mail on Unix.
The question is whether they can make _more_ money by offering
services and/or products based on open source software. The answer to
that is very big, emphatic YES.
