The Tories have been trying to get on the bandwagon:
George Osborne showing that open source has now become a cliche
Commentary and followup on Osborne’s opensource speach
It’s funny cos it’s sad.
I’ve also just found that there is a bit of the government that’s supporting open source.
UK government site to encourage(!) the use of Open Source Software by local authorities through knowledge sharing and practical advice.
Wow. They’ve done a good job of making their presence known. We can now watch them duke it out with the National Open Centre.
