LXer: French National Assembly will use open source desktops

Published at LXer:

Deputies elected to the French National Assembly in the next legislative session will find open-source software on the desktop PCs provided for their use. The use of free software will result in substantial cost savings, despite the cost of migration and training, the Assembly said in a statement Wednesday. Free and open source software now offers all the functions the deputies need, according to a study conducted at the request of the president of the assembly, Jean-Louis Debre. The software on the deputies' computers will include the Linux operating system, the Open Office productivity suite, the Firefox Web browser and an open-source e-mail application. A number of deputies had asked the president of the Assembly to consider the use of open source software, the statement said.
