Sayonara, Windows! Konichiwa, Linux!
From Softpedia.com: Sayonara, Windows! Konichiwa, Linux!
What happened to Microsoft in Massachusetts, whose officials haven’t been convinced by the Redmond giant to wait quietly for Office 12, a product promised to be more “friendly” with the Office suite with the Open XML standard, will be a puny earthquake compared to the tsunami prepared by Japan!
AP informs that the Japanese officials have started to ponder upon the introduction of Linux on governmental PCs, in order to break free from Microsoft and its Windows operating system.
One of the Internal Affairs and Communications ministry officials, cited by AP, said that the Open Source software should be regarded as an “important option” for the governmental acquisition policy.
Interesting how yet another country is looking to legitimatize Linux as an alternative over Windows...
