The Office of the Secretary of Defense CIO releases policy guidance promoting the use of Open Source Software throughout the DoD.


This is wonderful news, its great to see the DoD taking a leadership position with Open Source. It also puts in place guidance that encourages the evaluation of open source products as well as how they should be managed within the DoD. I believe that other agencies across the Federal Government should be pro-actively creating polices like this within their organizations.
