Weblog:   The Growing Politicization of Open Source
Subject:   Linux and Politics

I am in agreement that we should not see our government mandate that Open Source Software be used everywhere in Government.


Rather as mentioned it should be legislated in such a way that OSS is an excellent alternative to be looked at by government's everywhere and used where applicable.


In the same light, the proposed legislation by the governments of Peru,and now being considered in the California bill, could be the backlash of to many years of Microsoft stuffing their products down the government's throat without considering the long term consequences of their inactions in the areas of security, and licensing, etc.


I do applaude those who are taking a stance against those things Microsoft, but let's be realistic, no one wants to have their government,local or national, to dictate what the worksrs can cannot use to be productive at work.
