AGIMO Guide to Open-Source Sofware

Ever head of the Australian Government Information Management Office? Me neither, until Slashdot revealed that they have just released the Guide to Open Source Software for Australian Government Agencies. I've had a quick read and it seems remarkably fair, balanced and comprehensive. Nice work Australian Government, it's nice to know I dont have to be ashamed all the time.

So does the government "get it" about open-source?. Maybe not quite. But it's a whole lot better than the "open-source is communisum" rhetoric that I keep hearing come out of the US.
