I couldn't agree more. We've looked into migrating some workstations to
linux, but han't had much luck finding an approprate distro. ie. one
that's not gonna take weeks for me to make useable by general users (ya
know, morons). most of the distibutions that claim to be "realy realy
easy to use and set up" have come with non-free licences, and generally
have seemed more than just a bit flimzey.
Linux is past the stage where it can integrate seamlessley with other
systems (thanks Tridge!). If someone were to push for open source in
government, they'd need a complete solution that would fit in with
hind-end-users and overworked tech staff. ;-)
SO, full support to open source in gvnm't, 'coz closed source software
is scary & dangerous!
