Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
True story. A project team was in need of an open source tool. Following their company's policy, the team requested their Information Systems (IS) department download the tool.

Not satisfied with the information provided and unable to take a decision, the IS department then forwarded the request to the Legal department.
