linux: Tamil Nadu (India) may shut door on Microsoft

January 3, 2007

Saw this on Slashdot | Tamil Nadu (India) Shutting the Door On Microsoft: linux: Tamil Nadu (India) may shut door on Microsoft: “The Tamil Nadu government, which is on a fast-track pushing the state to the top in the Indian IT sector, has almost shut its door on the software giant, Microsoft, preferring the Open Source Systems (OSS) for reasons of costs and easy migrating capabilities.”

This may be a ‘greater good’^tm than my post on OLPC, because local choice is central. Though how much choice is open to question. It is relative though, and I’m curious about Open Source Software.
