I’ve been working on a contract for the last few months at a government agency and it’s one thing I’ve mentioned a few times in that period. I think all gov. departments should be using open source software, other governments are doing it, so should we.
Seems the Green party thinks so too (also notice the first comment on that post, it’s from a Green party official it seems). Looks like they practice what they preach backend wise, too bad their website isn’t all that good standards and accessibility wise.
It won’t convince me to vote for them but it’s an attention getter and I’m aware of them now. If only the guy running in my riding looked competent. I know, I know, doesn’t mean much but certainly not a good first impression.
