I can't cast my vote because none of the options fit my point of view.
;) My "vote" is that I try to use the best tool for the job, period.
If it's open source, fine. If it's proprietary source, fine. If it
gets the job done, that's all I could ask for. But no, I don't make a
choice based on whether it's open source or not.
