2 and 3 are less and less likely because there is observational evidence of dark matter using different methods. e.g. rotation of galaxy and lensing which are different observations, but point to one cause which is increased mass of matter that's not detectable in the electromagnetic spectrum.

I think a big difference is in how you can just 'fire' people casually in FLOSS. You don't have to accept people's pull request. You can tell them their code sucks, w/o sugar coating it. There's also non-monetary incentives that drives FLOSS that you'll have a hard time duplicating. That said, may be make it clear to your boss that you should be given the power to reject bad code w/o lengthy explanation. The ability to change team members easily if need be. Also, may be the ability to say more about a project when posting job positions, and not just the generic, "Over x years of experience in y". The linux kernel is a good example. Also, you must have people who knows git well.
