 Linux in Government

O'Reilly talks about Linux in government.

"Outside the realm of scientific applications, however, the barriers to open source adoption have always been, and remain, high. Given the visibility associated with federal contracts, an IT manager switching a major database from Oracle to MySQL, for example, can be a lot trickier than an individual scientist deciding to switch from Windows to Linux."
