    Hoist with their own FUD: an old marketing tactic is backfiring

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Established IT vendors have long relied on "fear, uncertainty, and doubt" to
    | scare their customers away from the upstarts. But customers are getting tired
    | of it, and a new generation of vendors is finding that FUD only makes them
    | stronger.

    | "Sophisticated customers aren't listening to the old open source FUD, like
    | it’s insecure or of poor quality, so they've tried new techniques like
    | attacking the licensing issues or the threat of action from Microsoft or SCO
    | on patent infringement."
