[Nettime-nl] Peru & Open Source

Dit is erg goed:

> Apparently, the Peruvian government is considering a bill mandating 
> open-source software for all public bureaux. From the congressman's 
> letter, we gather that MS had circulated a FUD communiqué 
> calculated to frighten world + dog with images of collapsing 
> domestic software markets, spiraling costs and systems migration 
> nightmares. Villanueva Nuñez slices and dices with great skill to 
> reveal the internal inconsistencies, unsupportable claims and 
> irrational conclusions which the MS flacks trade in.
> The letter provides the most thoughtful and thorough rebuttal we've 
> ever seen to Microsoft's standard open-source terror boilerplate. ®
