Summary: The process of voice robbing as it is seen in recent news articles where data on FOSS is obtained through its shrewd foes (disguised as “pro-FOSS”)
Katherine Noyes calls it “Tale of Two Surveys”, we call it a tale of propaganda from two companies that sell fear, or a so-called study set from the posers of FOSS (both from proprietary software companies), monetising fear of FOSS. The company called Univa has nothing to do with FOSS and Mac Asay identifies flaws in the ‘study’ it produced:
The first comes from Univa, a data center automation company that also offers an open-source version of its Grid Engine product. Univa found that while 76% of enterprises surveyed are using open source, a full 75% experience problems running it in mission-critical workloads.
Finally, be sure to check who is funded by whom. Be careful when articles cite Black Duck as authority for principal talking point. They are feeding and grooming FOSS-hostile circles with money leading back to Microsoft (Microsoft partnerships and self-serving Microsoft-grooming press releases). █
