linux friendly move in the Australian Tax Office

"Obviously the more the Linux community gets behind this belated move and gives feedback to the ATO, the better it will be for Australian business," he said.

Mr Greig is also a community distributor for the free office suite OpenOffice.org. He posted his comments to the local Linux user group, Linux Users of Victoria.
