One more for the fan club :-)

U.S. may be left behind in open-source technology, Red Hat's Szulik warns - Computerworld

"Why is it that I can meet with the president of India, who spent an hour with me talking about how he was going to use open-source software ... to move his educational system to the 21st century, yet I struggle in my town just to get an appointment with the local school committee to introduce them to this thing called ... Linux?" Szulik asked.

I wonder what's the more important news: the US being left behind because of their policies, or the Indian president having the vision to recognise what open source can do?

Both are "old news" to me, but perhaps one or two of the three or four readers I have may find something new here ;-)
