| "OpenOffice will be cheaper to maintain and 
| will run better than Microsoft's proprietary 
| alternative", expects Lars Roark, IT manager 
| at the Danish municipality of RÃdovre, 
| according to reports in Danish media.
| The municipality on Friday announced it will 
| this week start to use OpenOffice,  alongside 
| Microsoft's proprietary alternative. However 
| the municipality plans to eventually move to 
| OpenOffice completely.


Open Source and Cost of Use

| Funny story: a coworker saw me using 
| Clonezilla the other day. I was sitting in 
| the frigid server room (did I say room, itâs 
| more like a closet really) and cloning the 
| shit out of some laptops. He seemed impressed 
| by the concept and asked me how much did it 
| cost.

| Just to let you know, we are experiencing a

| for a few years.
| City of TÃnder has been using OpenOffice in | schools for about a year.
| City of Lyngby-TaarbÃk has decided to use
| OpenOffice in schools.
