Maybe, not definately. Money still runs the world, and can often get more done. We still have copyrights and patents, so what value is it ever going to be to a company to give away their trade secrets that they are making millions on?
Ideas and processes can still be patented and no open source products can duplicate them. Just imagine if Microsoft had been able to patent a "windowing system".
