Manou Chen of Open.Amsterdam (video interview)


Author: Robin 'Roblimo' Miller

Open.Amsterdam (in Dutch; English PDF download available here) is working to convert most of the city of Amsterdam’s computers to GNU/Linux and open source software, and to make sure that any remaining proprietary-OS computers owned by the city use open file formats instead of closed, proprietary ones. In this interview, project director Manuo Chen tells us how the project is going and a little about its goals — and a little about some of the pitfalls it has encountered, too.
