While I agree is a great idea, this following quote will prevent wide acceptance (cost notwithstanding).

THAT is an oxymoron. Proprietary anything dooms it to obsolescence, IMHO. What we really need is some kind of open source venture funding that gets us to the same end using the collective minds of geeks like us. I would really like to have the budget to make a cool video like that.

Viva la Open Source! (or should that be masculine ‘le’ ?)
