Is the current economy good for open source software?

With the economy in a downward spiral, many companies and individuals are changing how they spend money as budgets tighten. I've been an open source software fan since college in the early to mid 1990s. For me, there are many benefits of using open source. Cost is just one of those many benefits, but with the current economy, cost is becoming a primary driver leading more companies to explore open source solutions.
