The City Hall of Vieira do Minho adopts Free Software (LibreOffice)

The City Hall of Vieira do Minho has definitively adopted the
productivity software LibreOffice around its computing park. This
productivity package includes Writer, word processing and editing of web
pages, Calc (Spreadsheet), creating and editing spreadsheets, Impress,
creating and editing multimedia presentations, Draw, creating and
editing drawings, diagrams and graphs , Base (Database), creating and
editing Databases and Math (Equation Editor).

With this change to a Free Software, besides the lack of a financial
burden due to the inexistence of licensing (Free Software), this City
Hall has adopted open standards in accordance with Law 36/2011 of 21
June. It has also started the standardization and universality of
digital formats in the files used by the City Hall and its residents.

This type of software enables the use of a variety of operating systems
for use of various tools, it has been adopted internationally with very
positive and encouraging results, it has the ability to import / export
various proprietary formats (Word files, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook,
etc.) and establishes the native creation of PDF files. Other
interesting feature of the software is to be fully in Portuguese and
have writing tools also in Portuguese.

Regarding the management of employees ' electronic mail, the City Hall
has adopted the Thunderbird program, also a Free Software.
With this measure, the City Hall of Vieira do Minho aims to demonstrate
that the definitive adoption of free software in many areas of public
administration is not only desirable but also essential for a more
modern and financially sustainable Public Service.
