"I'm not saying this is where Progeny was headed, but the "no IP" excuse is a denial of business reality, in my opinion. "

I think his point with a "level playing field" is that FOSS doesn't allow one. Whatever distinguished Progeny from it's competition (and in this case free competition) could easily be taken away.
