"It's not that open-source software is necessarily better in its
features. Often it's not. But an open-source software package with
equal or even slightly deficient functionality, when compared to a
proprietary offering, is still a safer and likely better bet than
the proprietary offering. Don't believe me? You don't have to. With
open source, you can try before you buy."
