I've already gotten a bunch of great replies, off-list and on-list, but I think I may not have been clear in my mail: I'm specifically looking for myths that might be directly related to the geo side of the open source world.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] Top ten myths for open source in geo?


I'm doing an article addressing the top ~10 myths/misperceptions about open source for geo.  There are a number of such pieces already out there about open source in general, from which I'll borrow heavily, but I'd like to have half the list be myths specific to the geo and GIS world we're playing in.

Do you have any nominations?  Which issues are not well understood?  What questions do you most frequently get asked?

Thanks in advance -
