Lots of startups fail.  In fact, probably MOST do.  Some fail before 
they reach the IPO stage, some after.  That doesn't make it a scam.

If there was a particular fraud scheme that you're referring to, I don't 
happen to know about it -- I never invested in any Linux companies and 
didn't follow the market in them.  But was it any worse than the 
Internet bubble?
