Open Source software runs the world (or “how to hack you TV”)

Open Source software runs the world. Literally. Thirty years ago, most of the critical and noncritical systems that required software used proprietary systems. Bank data centers run on Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, etc. Some other companies would use Windows 2000 and other operating systems in that family.
Talking about non-critical systems, most of them used obscure proprietary systems. The source code was not available and the protocols used to talk to other devices were not public either.
