Stop software "piracy", support Open Source !

I want to share Dag blog post about software privacy.

De Standaard is once again helping the BSA and Microsoft with their scare tactics, so let me give some counter-weight...

Is commercial software too expensive or "piracy" against your ethics ? Afraid of the BSA raiding your home or business ? Start using Open Source software ! For everything you do, a free ('no strings attached') Open Source alternative exists. And you can still pay someone, if you want to :-)

Related to this. I had attend "persidangan Ketua Pegawai Maklumat" CIO, Untuk Sektor Awam 2008

and found this "PEKELILING KONTRAK PERBENDAHARAAN BIL. 3 TAHUN 2008" in OSCC MAMPU booth with others exhibitiors materials, that can be view here

so I need to ask my OSCC friends, where did they get it but I can assume. For Malaysian Agencies, they alway have OSCC MAMPU for Open Source Software.
