The Network World staff wrote below a large Microsoft Ad: "Three open source start-up executives Tuesday showed their daring by making pitches to potential customers. What made them daring is that they did it in front of dozens of attendees at the Open Source Business Conference in Newton, Mass."

"Not surprisingly, the customer panelists who agreed to participate are from organizations that use open source software, though some to much larger extents than others. Their responses to the new companies ranged from practically inviting them in to show off their software to telling them to get back in a couple of years."
