Not necessarily. Embedded systems, for example, can absolutely rely upon closed-source software for which there is no open/cheaper/comparable alternative. I posted my reply while on break from working on such a very thing. The company's growing rapidly and raking in $$$. I fail to see how they have a "horrible business model".

I just ditched Google Voice after using it for 2-3 years because it's incredibly unreliable. Missed/late deliveries of texts, incoming calls that don't arrive and go straight to voicemail (with an occasional notification that I even have one!), and messages that won't even send without a reboot. I'm far from the only one either. Sorry Google, but I need my phone to actually work as a phone. I guess I got what I paid for.

One good suit is worth a thousand resumes.
