During a speech at the II open-source conference in SpainUnited Nations inspector Dominique Ouredrago said that the UN has recommended its members to use open-source software, particularly in areas related to health, education and international commerce.
He added that the United Nations considers open-source as the most appropriate vehicle for the development of its members. It probably doesn’t hurt the OSS case that Microsoft (obvious avatar of proprietary software demons) attracts criticism at every turn and faces unending anti-monopoly actions.
