I am sure FUD was involved here. I recall that in UP Diliman, the
student council first resisted the idea of going open source. Back
then they didn't know what FOSS was all about. I am sure that they
will eventually see the light but I agree that someone should pay them
a visit or dig deeper. Sometimes news reports leave out some details.

I am not necessarily against having MS in their labs but I think it
would be an injustice not to have FOSS there as well.

Anybody at least know how to contact them via email?
