If I were pedantic ... I'd suggest "Open Source enabling collaboration
and innovation". I see OS as a good way to reduce competition (in
favour of "co-opetition"), rather than enabling competion. When you
have good software commons solutions, it's typically better to evolve
and innovate on the commons rather than to set up competing solutions
and hope for survival of the fittest, no?

(Unless of course you mean enabling GNOME Mobile to compete with
proprietary solutions, in which case I totally agree!)
