Open source making its mark in NZ
,----[ Quote ]
| Kiwi firms are finally latching on to open
| source software, early survey results show.
| The survey is part of the Public Sector
| Remix project to investigate the use of
| free open source software on public sector
| desktops, and seeks to identify the number
| and capability of New Zealand companies
| providing and supporting the software.
| Fourteen central and local government
| agencies are on board, including NZ Post
| and the Department of the Prime Minister
| and Cabinet.
| John Rankin, director of project management
| firm Affinity, which is running the survey
| along with Victoria University's school of
| information management, says the results
| may dispel some myths.
