Would an Open Source monoculture...

  ... be better than a proprietary monoculture?

  ... be significantly better, enough to escape the commonly accepted
      disadvantages of a monoculture?

  ... create a similar global, zero-innovation playing field in IT as the
      current proprietary monoculture has?

  ... actually be a monoculture at all?
