"Mark Taylor, CEO at Sirius, accused Computacenter of skewing an
open source proof-of-concept pilot to favour Microsoft, with which
the systems integrator (SI) has a commercial relationship.
"'My opinion is that the large systems integrators would not
survive a transition to open source in the public sector, for the
simple reason that the savings would be enormous,â€
Mark Taylor told Computer Weekly. â€œThe loss to
their revenue would be massive. Their survival depends on there
being no successful open source trials.'"
