Another opinion on Open Source Software

Here is what Walter Mossberg, the famed WSJ tech writer, wrote on Open Source Software in his latest article reviewing the Ubuntu Linux.
Open source is a two-edged sword. While it draws on smart developers from many places, nobody is ultimately responsible for the quality of the product, and open-source developers often have an imperfect feel for how average people use software.
While his review focus on Ubuntu, but i guess the above quote is very general and applies to all open source software. If you don't have the time, experience and tolerance of failure for an open source alternative, a commercial product is always the better choice.

With his comment backing me, I am confident to recommend a real multi-wan router over open source software for all business use.
