A good article on Open Source at InfoWorld. IMHO the most powerful driver for utilizing Open Source remains:

What happens if something happens to the software vendor? What if the vendor gets bought by its big competitor and that new owner wants nothing to do with supporting you? What if the vendor is affected by a natural disaster in some other part of the country (or world) and can no longer function?

Closed source can lock you in. Badly. via.
