Forrester survey finds lack of interest in OSS?

When a Forrester Research representative emailed with the following survey highlights, I was more than a little surprised:
"Forrester released data today analyzing trend lines in enterprise open source usage in 2007. Among the key findings:
- Seventy percent of decision-makers responded that they don't have interest or have no plans to adopt open source software;
- Only 23 percent of respondents said expanding their use of open source software was a priority;
- Security is the main concern around adopting open source software. Eighty-eight percent of respondents said it was an important or very important concern."
The data is from 1,017 decision makers in North America & Europe.
