,----[ Quote ]
| In 2003, Brazil, for instance, announced plans to move 80 percent of
| its state computers to the open-source operating system Linux. In 2003,
| Taiwan launched a ?National Open Source Plan? to build a software industry
| that could replace the proprietary software in government and education.
| In France, the ministries of Defence, Culture, and Economy all use
| open-source operating systems. Japan, China, and South Korea are
| working together on an open-source alternative to Microsoft's Windows
| operating system.
| Politicians, meanwhile, enjoy the notion that open source can be adapted
| by their people to better address local needs
