Free Software for North Rhine-Westphalia

The green party in North Rhine-westphalia demands Free Software in public administration (German).

“Free Software offers great opportunities for a knowledge based society through variety, sustainability and security. The system of “open code” and “open standards” allows fair competition, precludes monopolies and ensures innovation.”

The downer: the proposal uses the term Free Software only once (in the quoted sentence) and then uses “open source” perpetually.

Well, but that’s maybe just my typical German side: never content and always complaining :)

flattr this!
