Shush! OSS outfit forms secret society to combat MS hit teams
Netproject,, the consultancy whose open source desktop pilot triggered large discounts from Microsoft for Newham Borough Council has formed an "Incubator Club" for organisations considering an open source switch. The membership of the club is being kept confidential, says Netproject's Eddie Bleadsale, because "we don't want the proprietary vendors to approach members before they have had time to fully evaluate open source." This we deduce as a reference to one proprietary vendor in particular, but not (hello Sun, hello IBM) exclusively to that one vendor.
