*  Who/what isgoing to support it?
*  How does it fit in with Best practices?
*  If there is support, how do we contract for it?
*  Besides price, what else does it do for me (or our org)?

Still thinking . . .

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 -
