""Legacy telecommunications providers have spent a lot
of marketing dollars on driving home the 'open source is bad'
message," says Garrett Smith, director of marketing and business
development at VoIP Supply. "Enterprises know that some of the
public and the telecommunications community carry this world view
and that their use of open-source telecommunications has the
potential to cause 'damage.'"
"Given the souring economy, hemorrhaging corporate bottom-lines
and the panic in many a shareholder's eye, will this "as
advertised" fear hold sway much longer?"
