Open (Source) government

Author: JT Smith has an analysis piece on the UK government's embrace of Open Source software. "The policy suggests increasing the use of open source software across
the whole range of government activities. The proposal states that the
open source movement is 'the start of a fundamental change in the
software infrastructure marketplace, but it is not a hype bubble that will
burst'. This positive, forward-looking statement is just about as bold a
declaration that open source is here to stay as anyone has ever made, at
least from those not intimately connected to the radical wing of open
source movement itself."
