GNU, GPL, Open Source Nearly half of European local government bodies are using open source software while nearly a third don't know that they are using open source at all. A Maastricht University survey of 12 counties has reportedly found 49 per cent using Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) while 70 per cent said they expect usage to increase.

Let's say your position is true. In the long run it would be better to use open-source, whether free of charge or commercial, whenever possible. On the other hand, I haven't heard too much about FOSS accounting and payroll apps (which need to be localized for tax regulations and such).
