It's actually kind of sad that CIO is doing a "you should consider
Open Source software" article in 2005. I'd say that any IT manager who
doesn't consider Open Source alternatives for any new project should
be fired. It's simply unacceptable.

Then again, IT managers are a notoriously conservative lot, and as
I've known my share of IT managers who eye personal computers with
distrust and disdain, there are probably plenty who just haven't even
bothered investigating Linux, Apache, Gnome, Open Office, or Firefox.
Or heard of.
