Blog: Open Source overcomes impasse in the public sector - PublicTechnology.net (blog) | Linux and Open Source | Scoop.it
The Open Source industry have been waiting the best part of ten years for the UK Government to mandate a ‘preference’ for Open Source Software (OSS) over proprietary or closed-source alternatives. I personally think it’s great - one year ago I summed up my view of the government’s stance on Open Source in one word: meaningless. OSS was being ignored, and then opposed. Now it’s finally been accepted, allowing the creation of an environment where we can state the obvious.
