The Register går til benet i denne sag og beskriver baglandet for Open Forum 
Europe

"At the moment for example it has on board several banks, IBM, HP and 
Compaq, a clutch of government departments and agencies (including The 
Office of the E-Envoy), BT, BA, the Metropolitan Police... We needn't say 
more, but there are plenty."
Og senere i artiklen 

"One might also observe that there is a distinct dearth of companies you'd 
actually class as open source companies in the supporters' list. Graham 
Taylor volunteers IBM and Caldera, but you could respond to this by 
pointing it out that this is the mouthy one that doesn't do anything, and 
the weird one. No Red Hat, no Mandrakesoft, no SuSE. Entry fees are 
currently set at bracing levels, from £3,000 to £25,000, which doesn't seem 
calculated to win hearts and minds among Open Source vendors. Graham Taylor 
concedes they may have to come down."

Det er måske lige at overdrive men det kunne værre en god ide at bemærke at 
det i høj grad er IBM med partnere der er drivene kreft i "Open Forum 
Europe"
