So far, only 9 agencies report using FLOSS desktop or client OS but that should change rapidly when more of the applications are FLOSS. 9 ministries have been declared self-reliant in FLOSS. Two hundred people participated in a conference on self-reliance in FLOSS for governmental agencies recently.
So, it continues, the march of FLOSS and GNU/Linux increasing its share of IT in the world. There’s still a ways to go. Many governments are still Wintel shops. I recommend Debian GNU/Linux if you want to manage all your IT with a few clicks.
