I think we talked about trying to get some case studies up at the
Schoolforge web site. If we want to reach people in organizations who
are worried about issues like support rather than initial price, maybe
we should start citing some research that shows how Open Source does
against commercial alternatives long term. I know Microsoft has done
something like this in their marketing to make a case against Open
Source. Do we have any links to articles, statistics, etc. that show
schools and school districts saving money long term when using
particular Open Source projects? If we can collect some links, I
could add a page to the Schoolforge wiki that we can refer people to
when they state concerns regarding long term costs of using Open
Source. Without any real statistics, it's hard to convince users who
are uncomfortable with Open Source that it is an affordable
alternative in the long run.
