| from Sweden:] The police commission has decided to allow Open Source
| programs into it's IT environment. They expect to save hundreds of
| millions of kronor. "We want more freedom of choice," says Head of
| IT Lena Charpentier. The police commission has now finished its
| evaluation of open source. The result is positive. "We have tested
| it and seen that it works."... Doesn't it cost to migrate? "Of
| course migration costs. But over the long term, going for open
| source makes recruitment easier, as open source is common
| in the universities."
