“The IT Department in the Municipality of Kalamarià has already installed LibreOffice to all of its 125 PC’s and is in the process of installing it to an additional 45 PC’s, located in various other organizations and bodies under the City Council’s supervision. GreekLUG fully supports the transition process and we already offered productive ideas and solutions on the critical issue of supporting users after the adoption of the free office productivity suite. “
Amen! Is it silly and unwise use of taxpayers’ monies to pay thousands of euros for functionality LibreOffice can provide for $0. FLOSS is much more efficient use of money in these days of deficit-fighting. I recommend they also consider switching to Debian GNU/Linux for their client OS to complete the process of escaping monopoly.
