Countries which recommend open source software are to go under scanner for being anti-capitalist. Why? Because this recommendation creates a bias against the proprietary non-open source companies.
If we apply this logic, every recommendation will be against some competitor. If the Government recommends Microsoft platform, the Linux or Mac guys can raise a hell. Just like a proprietary company might do it now if a country proposes the Linux platform. Or if a country prefers Web applications then desktop companies might revolt. Right now this is well marinated with a paste of anti-capitalism or anti-IP or a similar flavour. But we know that open source is an effective way to be most strict about IP. I am no economist, but I that open source is anti-monopolism, and not anti-capitalism, because that works the best for the user and his/her freedom.
To think of it, this is not surprising. FUD, and not merit, has been the most-used weapon against open source. And this is just another instance of it.
