Indeed, it is much better to be held hostage of a huge corporation that
does not care the less about your little business and that may change
it's licensing schemes or drop features on which you depend every

I know I'm simplyfing a lot, but if "competences lock-in" should be
weighted in the choice, I think it is also fair to consider vendor lock-in.
