"Webopedia Definition: FUD is an acronym for
fear, uncertainty and doubt. It is a marketing term that is often
used to cast a shadow over a competitor's product when your own is
unable to compete. FUD is a technique used by larger companies who
have a large market share. The FUD acronym was first freely defined
by Gene Amdahl after he left IBM to found his own company, Amdahl
Corp, with this statement: 'FUD is the fear, uncertainty, and doubt
that IBM sales people instill in the minds of potential customers
who might be considering Amdahl products.'"
