使用开源软件的经济考虑有所不同

it --- JL 是对的。指worry about the commercial viability of the vendors。"Any CIO who considers open source to solve a critical business need will look at its commercial viability," 加上文章第一段,it 指代的意思就很明白了。文章第一段:

No CIO minds saving money, but some worry that open source software is, well, too cheap. That was part of the problem faced by IMA Financial's Hallam when she tried to get the O.K. to deploy Concursive. "We view our software vendors as long-term partners. There was concern that they might disappear at some point," Hallam says. Ultimately, though, management was won over by the understanding that even if Concursive should fail, the open source code would still be IMA's and the open source community would continue to offer a measure of support.

Still, there's no getting around it. The economics of open source are different.
