We are not suppose to be in favor of any types of open source softwares.
Ubuntu and OpenOffice.org at this time, are much more easier to carry, distribute and duplicated.
If any vendor want us to distribute any open source softwares it's can be discuss with OSCC MAMPU. It's is much better for the vendors to come along with us during seminar road show. The vendors demo and show your products by your own words.
Openoffice.org is going to be one of the largest open source installation in the goverment of Malaysia. We are going to save a lot of money and it's can be used to help Malaysia ICT industry.
Desktop Linux is our next move. RnD OSCC MAMPU is already gearing up preparing all the needed tools and applications for the Desktop Migration.
