  • Next message: Warren Harrison: "Re: CRIME GNU Help"

    Is anyone working on getting legislation passed that directs the state to use
    open source software before going commercial?  Giving the budget crises et al.
    I tried to get budget numbers on what we are paying for commercial software
    packages that could easily be replaced by GNU based products.  No-one has or is
    willing to give me any information.  
    I just read in LJ that a couple of states had run into resistance from MS and
    others when trying to push this through.  I am thinking about getting some
    interested folk together to get see what we can do.  
    Any comments?
