[tdf-discuss] German Foreign Office is dropping only open source software policy


http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/227849/open_source_advocates_angry_at_german_govt_decision.html

This isn't even about OpenOffice vs LibreOffice... It's about Closed Source
vs Open Source

TBH I think it was a bad move to change radically if you have experienced
and productive users trained on whatever program (regardless of the
license). 

Also, if you need professional support you can't just move to Open Source,
let alone a Linux distro that was still being developed...

Could it be that it took them 6 years to realize that?
