FUD /fuhd/ n.  Defined by Gene Amdahl after he left IBM to
found his own company: "FUD is the fear, uncertainty, and doubt that IBM
sales people instill in the minds of potential customers who might be
considering Amdahl products."  The idea, of course, was to persuade
them to go with safe IBM gear rather than with competitors' equipment.
This implicit coercion was traditionally accomplished by promising
that Good Things would happen to people who stuck with IBM, but Dark
Shadows loomed over the future of competitors' equipment or software.
See IBM.  After 1990 the term FUD was associated increasingly frequently
with Microsoft, and has become generalized to refer to any kind of
disinformation used as a competitive weapon.
