Brazil go for open-source software

    Brazil says it's cheaper not to use Microsoft
    In Brazil's Ministry for Cities, staff are busily at work.
    The scene is much like any other modern office: an open-plan work space crammed with desks, telephones and computers.

    But there's one big difference. The word 'Microsoft' is nowhere in sight.

    Instead, computers here now use the Linux operating system. It has many similar functions to Microsoft's Windows - but unlike Windows, it is available for free.

    Increasingly, Brazil's government ministries and state-run enterprises are abandoning Windows in favour of 'open-source' or 'free' software, like Linux.

    I am very happy about this. Every day more and more authorities pass on open source. I think very much lately to pass on open source too.
