[Computerbank] Open Source (1), M$ (0)

This is an interesting strong rebuttal of micro$ofts continual 'lets scare 
businesses about open source'...
Naturally, will post in full to anyone who cant access it:)


MS in Peruvian open-source nightmare

There's a letter circulating, purportedly from Peruvian Congressman David 
Villanueva Nuñez to Microsoft Peru, which cuts the heart out of Redmond's 
chief 'panic points' to chill those considering open-source migration. 

Apparently, the Peruvian government is considering a bill mandating 
open-source software for all public bureaux. From the congressman's letter, 
we gather that MS had circulated a FUD communiqué calculated to frighten 
world + dog with images of collapsing domestic software markets, spiraling 
costs and systems migration nightmares. Villanueva Nuñez slices and dices 
with great skill to reveal the internal inconsistencies, unsupportable claims 
and irrational conclusions which the MS flacks trade in.
