Fighting Claims That Open Source Is Insecure?

,----[ Quote ]
| Lately there has been a HUGE push by Certified Microsoft
| Professionals and their companies to call clients and warn
| them of the dangers of open source. This week I received calls
| from 4 different customers that they were warned that they are
| dangerously insecure because they run Open Source Operating
| systems or Software because 'anyone can read the code and hack
| you with ease' they are being told. Other colleagues in the area
| also have noticed this about 3 Microsoft Partners or so they claim
| have been going out of their way to strike fear of OSS in
| companies that respond with 'yes we use Open source or Linux'
| when the sales call comes in.

Reviewing a Microsoft anti-Linux case study

,----[ Quote ]
| The answer is that neither Linux nor Solaris nor any other Unix variant is 
| mentioned in this report; Microsoft simply hung an anti-Linux label on a 
| very carefully worded story about a pair of committed Microsoft partners, 
| HP and Accenture, getting together with Microsoft to sell rather simple 
| technology to a willing customer - whose employers, I think, should be 
| seriously embarrassed.
