The Gartner Group's Magic Quadrant is one of the most referenced research tools in the IT industry. During the boom years of the late 1990s nearly every company that received funding or even hoped to get an IPO completed had to get a Gartner subscription to populate their S1s (S1 is a document you file with the Securities and Exchange Commission to register your intentions to go public) with market statistics to substantiate their market direction and position.

Thank you. Finally a voice of reason. I've long suspected results from Gartner. In fact, I have a problem with these types of firms doing so called "independent" research when clearly they are also funded by various vendors, i.e. Microsoft, Intel, IBM, HP, etc.
One example is Gartner's CRM quadrant I think from last year. It had MS's CRM in the leaders quad but clearly such an immature product which is so totally proprietary had to be from a "slanted" perspective.

It is a violation of privacy and civil liberties.
It will lead to stigma and discrimination.
It will encourage counterfeits and other criminal activities.
