FUD is an abbreviation for Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. It has been spread on purpose by some commercial enterprises that saw their proprietary bunsiness models endangered by Open Source and Free Software. Some large scale ad campaigns have been run to damage the reputation of Free and Open Source Software as it seemed to be the only way to get rid of it. This did not work out but we all still suffer from the brainwashing that has been induced.
