As is pretending that something that worked for a limited time will work forever.
See dinosaurs, music industry, etc. for practical examples.

It might take a while, but open source will ultimately win because of 'standing on the shoulders of giants'. Designs that are closed and eventually thrown away rather than evolve and grow are a dead end. They may have short-term wins but they don't scale.

Regulatory issues are irrelevant : open source does not necessarily mean that uncontrolled installations happen and regulatory regimes will adapt to keep themselves relevant.

Secure boot should be protected by pki, not symmetric encryption ... wtf were they thinking?

"Dinosaurs" is not even close to being a relevant example.
"Music industry" still exists so not sure what your point is there, I assume you mean the transition from physical to software media?
