Canonical and Microsoft: Is Sustaining a Business Better than Turning a Profit Right Now?

Kristin Shoemaker wrote a short, but interesting post about the two very different business-models user by Microsoft and Canonical. Is sustaining a business better than turning a profit right now?

Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical, claims that the company is very close to the $30M mark, at which point, they will be a self-sustaining company. While people feel that this should not worry Microsoft, the real question is whether a 10,000 person effort on a "failure" like Vista can actually be the paradigm of a long-term strategy.
