the novel way in which rPath makes money from open-source
"Want to rent out a Linux application that can run on an ordinary Windows box with VMWare? Keith Boswell has a deal for you.
Boswell is vp-marketing with rPath, a company that has turned $6.4 million in venture capital into rBuilder, which does what I just described.
Let's let Boswell explain it himself. "rBuilder takes a look at the application, combines the files it needs with our version of Linux and turns it into an application image. Its an enabling platform." The kernel comes from the company's own rPath Linux.
