""The honeymoon period for proprietary software is
over. It remains a struggle for many executives to even begin to
justify their investment in IT...Ten years ago, I believed that
there were reasonable exceptions for when to use proprietary

has no advantage, even for the most specific applications."
"It used to be believed (by myself and others) that open source
couldn't tackle niche applications, as there wouldn't be a
financial incentive or sufficient expertise in a given field to
mount an open-source approach. But that thinking was wrong. We just
didn't know it yet"
