Geoff Zeiss just relayed some very interesting statements coming from Mr. President Barack Obama.
From the mentionned article, here are some interesting extracts:
- "The secret to a more secure and cost effective government is through open source technologies and products."
- "It's intuitively obvious open source is more cost effective and productive than proprietary software"
- "Mr Tiemann said while some departments already use open source technologies, overall it has been estimated that the global loss due to proprietary software is "in excess of $1 trillion a year."
- "He described Mr Obama as "our first open source President, a leader willing to let anybody and everybody figure out how, when and where they want to get involved."
