I'd suggest that's a fairly empty threat.

We migrated from TSM to NetBackup at work about 2 years ago and I
think TSM was vastly better.  We had major problems getting NetBackup
working - though I'm not sure how much of that was caused by poor
internal planning and implementation decisions.  NetBackup
administration is also atrocious.  Note that NetBackup's security
model seems to be fairly poor (the NetBackup daemon must be started
from inetd as root and has no obvious security).
