Tim express the correct view of this issue. As an advocate of open source software and a small business person I can tell you that a sense of distrust does exist among decision makers about adopting open source. Attempts to narrow the purchasing process in other places would only solidify these views. Personally I like the liberties that open source provides. To be consistent leave the same liberties in place in economic choices. Why would anyone want to taint open source by associating it with the heavy handedness of legal compulsion.
