There difference may be that it's augmentative competition rather than destructive - In business, it's optimal to completely eliminate rivals. In open source, you don't have to do that; you can just do better. It's a more pure meritocracy. I hope. :)
That said, there's still some dirty pool played from time to time, but since it's played in the open, it hardly festers.
