No one likes tax men because they take our money but they are just doing their jobs. The tax man in Czechoslovakia is doing a bit more. Perhaps to increase tax revenue he is supporting the idea that computers bought without software should not give a tax deduction. How cute. He signed a release by the BSA equating using free software as “piracy”. He’s gone too far.
Watch that your tax man does not go for the same idea. Businesses invest in IT to provide/improve productivity. They should choose the best performance/price and if that is FLOSS on generic hardware it is none of the tax man’s business. Someone should give the Czech government a good kick. Hey! They are having an election! Now is a good time to demand FLOSS be respected by government. Oops! Too late. Social Democrats are winning but have a minority. There could be a right-wing coalition. It could be bad news for FLOSS in Czechoslovakia.
