Answering the Call for Open Source Government

,----[ Quote ]
| President Obama came to office with the promise of change. His administration 
| has pledged to create an environment of openness and participation. Some have 
| already called him the “open source president” such as consultant and CNN 
| contributor Alex Castellanos.   
| There’s no better time than now. Transparency builds trust. Participation 
| solves problems. And we believe that open source provides an answer. 
| Red Hat is excited that the Obama administration recognizes the value of open 
| source beyond software. Open source principles are changing how we learn, how 
| we share information, how developers create, and how companies do business. 
| Now it has the opportunity to change our government.

| "We favor Linux for what we do. We don't want to be beholden to any one
| [hardware or software] supplier, even if it is very good. We want the freedom
