Lobbypapier gegen Open Source von SirsiDynix

SirsiDynix Corp restricted lobby paper against Open Source technologies

This document was released only to a select number of existing customers of the company SirsiDynix, a proprietary library automation software vendor. According to our source it has not been released more broadly specifically because of the misinformation about open source software and possible libel per se against certain competitors contained therein.

SirsiDynix is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with one of the largest public libraries in the U.S. (Queens Borough, NY) and this document does illustrate the less-than-ethical nature of this company.
The source states that the document should be leaked so that everyone can see to what extent SirsiDynix will attempt to spread falsehoods and smear open source and the proponents of open source.

Eins der “Argumente” gegen Open Source:

Some software isn’t compatible with open source. Choosing any solution may foreclose on other software. This opportunity cost may not be apparent for years when the need for the other software emerges.

Wenn man jetzt “open source” durch “any other software” ersetzt, ändert sich auch nichts an der Aussage. So ein Quatsch!
