Another government shifts to Open Standards and Open Source.

My dream is to really see the Philippines supporting Open Standards and finally dumping proprietary file formats that lock-in the government to certain vendors. It only takes political will to do this and I am hoping that our CICT commissioners will see the importance of support Open Standards. I am not saying that the government go Open Source but that will even be better, of course.

Anyway, this is a challenge to our CICT commissioners to commission a full blown study of the impact of using Open Standards and Open Source for the entire bureaucracy. I am sure that the advantages to the government will outweigh the disadvantages.
