Open Source firm, what do you mean?

Matt Asay, who recently announced that if you want to follow his valuable open source commentary you have to to do it from InfoWorld, yesterday wrote about what constitutes an open source company.

Some models rely on a small percentage of the being open source, others fund open source projects but have the majority of their software products proprietary and I believe he is right stating:

In someone’s mind, every open source company out there is not open source enough.

Matt concludes saying that the best policing mechanism he found to answer the question is the community. So, what do you think?
