In some cases the FUD spread about open source is damaging. Without
mentioning names I know one guy who wanted GIMP on the windows machine at
his work place to aid with some graphics work, he was told by the
I.TSupport (and therefore management) that they can't install it as it
infringe on copyrights,  and patents. They also claimed it could be a
security risk to the network. Sounds like they are listening to Microsoft's
FUD campaigns.
