UK government seeks to embrace Open Source

Author: JT Smith

From The Register: "The UK government has published the first draft of its proposed policy on the use of
open source software and is seeking comments from the public.

The policy essentially seeks to increase the use of open source software at all
levels of government and public sector IT provision. Behind this broader
acceptance of open source solutions lies a desire to ensure interoperability and the
support of open standards and specifications."
