Management Summary of ‘Social vs Capital’ parts 1 – 3

  1. Avoid hardware vendor lock-in by using Unix-style operating systems that can run on any appropriate hardware.
  2. Avoid software vendor lock-in by using Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) so development can be done by anyone with appropriate skills and shared for the common good.
  3. Avoid service provider lock-in by only using FOSS on Linux to provide services,  operated by multiple service providers in a distributed network with easy data transfer/mirroring between providers.

All 3 suggestions encourage fair competition between competitors in a free market, without the potential to abuse a market-leading position, to the benefit of consumers.
