Open Computing in Government Co-Conference

The best blog entry title of the week has to go to Grant for his announcement of some government stuff. The title? “Oz government gets a clue about Open Source”…

And today, after much behind the scenes negotiating, I got the news that the Australian Government is finally … after much promising … going to release the official guide to how government departments should do open source. Everything from assessing its merits against proprietary software, through to comparing TCO, examples of previous open source projects, etc. What’s even better, is they’ve agreed to do the launch at the conference! Cool!
