Too late to discredit open source, advocates say

Advocates and users of free and open source software (FOSS) technology believe that it is too late for any form of crusade to discredit FOSS as it is already widely used.

The sources made the statement following reports that some private software firms are now using marketing funds to mislead enterprises towards adopting the open source strategy.

"It's too late," exclaimed Winston Damarillo, founder and chairman of software development firm Exist Global, in an interview with Computerworld Philippines. "Open source is all over the place."

Too late to discredit open source, advocates say.
