It's a meaningless question. Most popular open source projects have been open source right from the start, immediately disqualifying them. That leaves VERY few contenders to choose from, probably numbered somewhere in the tens. I think that's what nix meant when he said "razor thin".
It's like saying, "how many all-star quarterbacks went to Notre Dame and drove a LeSabre while there?" The question eradicates most of its candidates so it's futile to try to draw a meaningful general conclusion from its results. (my apologies to Joe Montana if he drove a crappy Buick...)
That said, there's one very obvious example that's been all over the news lately. It's easily the most popular language for business and it has a small triangle named Duke as its mascot. I have a few others in mind but it would take some work for me to make sure. And, since the question is meaningless, I shan't take the time.
Does that make sense?
