MS in Peruvian Open Source nightmare
The Register has more details about the story that surfaced last week. There's a link to the Preuvian congressman's letter. "Apparently, the Peruvian government is considering a bill mandating open-source software for all public bureaux. From the congressman's letter, we gather that MS had circulated a FUD communiquÃ© calculated to frighten world + dog with images of collapsing domestic software markets, spiraling costs and systems migration nightmares."
