Governments Moving to Open Source Software - Amen!

A couple of great posts out there in the last week or so. First, Italy’s Military is moving from Microsoft Office to Libre Office over the next few years. I like their thought process. The article gives some detail about their move so far and their users’ reactions (or lack thereof).

The next article is about Bulgaria, and their Development Advisor’s push for the Government to require all new software built for the government to be open source.

That’s Great. But it doesn’t mention what the Italian Military is going to use for an Email client. I know in our office MS Outlook is the main MS office suite app that we use. I would like to know what they have standardized on. Thanks for the info, Brian.
