PR is important

Although I can understand some of the concerns in the article we have to understand that at the level your talking about (politics) publicity is far more important than technical advantages.

This is what makes Microsoft so big, you can say a lot about them, but their marketing machine is very good and what they promise does not need to be what they deliver, but people (read managers who do not have a clue) go for their 'solutions'.

So for once be glad that foss is being put in a good spotlight and use it from the positive side and try to resolve the negative once!
