Anyone who proposed proprietary software has something to hide!


A blast from the past. I think the relevance is even more in today’s economy. How can any CIO worth his yearly salary even consider proprietary software? “Any IT Manager/CIO who proposes proprietary software has something to hide” was a great statement that was made at a FOSS bill hearing in Manila this past December.

One thought on “Anyone who proposed proprietary software has something to hide!

  1. well sometimes you don’t have an alternative
    this is not applicable in asic design. about 60% of the tools are not available as FOSS equivalent and if you have, they produce a chip that is 1000 times more experience in terms of area,timing and power.
    Unfortunately it is a reality.
    E.g. Synopsys Design Compiler
