Open Source projects complete (and often exceed) commercial software.  If the United States Department of Defense (US DOD) can put open source on equal footing with commercial software, the entire market is shifting to a new paradigm of software development.  The writing on the wall?  "All software will soon be open source.  The software market needs to shift its business model from license to services." Check out this directive from the US DOD CIO:
 
ClearFoundation is dedicated to fostering the development of open source solutions to manage the gateway server layer.  ClearOS is a fully open source point and click network management solution.  ClearOS also offers direct access to ClearSDN which delivers services such as: Antivirus firewall, VPN client, dyndns, webfilter, ipsec, offsite backup and spam blocker.
