+ - UK Government Plans Switch to Open Source->

Submitted by Karashur
Karashur (3343623) writes "Ministers are looking at saving tens of millions of pounds a year by abandoning expensive software produced by firms such as Microsoft. Some £200m has been spent by the public sector on the computer giant's Office suite alone since 2010.

The Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude believes a significant proportion of that outlay could be cut by switching to free "open-source" software, such as OpenOffice, or Google Docs."
