  That's interesting. In my home country, something like this - choosing
closed-specification based software in detriment of equivalent
open-specification versions would rise questioning from paid users about
the correctness of the decision-maker, eventually rising pressure level
against him.

  Of course, as I'm talking about Brazil, this will never make any
difference, except that everybody will know that (manager|director|the
one that takes decisions) as a crappy corrupt professional that do not
woth his/her salary.

  I personally see this as a corruption networking technique. ;-)
