TechWeb reports: "With little or no marketing budget, open source software is
finding its way into the back offices of the largest
companies and is powering some of the
highest-bandwidth websites on the Internet.
Not only does open source software rarely have the
benefit of professional marketing, but companies that do
deploy it in their infrastructures often hesitate to admit it.
Security concerns are one reason, but developers in IT
departments often use open source without the
knowledge of higher-level management."
