Relevance to staffing software: new players can make a move that others can't.  If I were starting from scratch I might consider writing in LAMP or some open source platform, but now I have a large installed base on Microsoft and the staffing market here wouldn't tolerate a step back in functionality to go open source.  It's the old saw about how it was possible for God to have created the world in six days: he didn't have an installed base to worry about.
