[ossig] Reconsider open source software adoption



The U.S. Defense Department should think twice before embracing open-source
software, a trade association is advising.
The Initiative for Software Choice, which counts Microsoft, Cisco Systems
and Intel among its backers, said in comments filed Tuesday that the
department should "avoid crafting needless and potentially detrimental IT
policy to promote the use" of open-source software. "Open source" means
every software developer can view the source code for software, modify it,
and use it for free.
