Berhemat jutaan Euro

That’s what the Gendarmerie Nationale, the French national police force, claim.

A report published by the European Commission’s Open Source Observatory provides some details from a recent presentation given by Gendarmerie Lieutenant-Colonel Xavier Guimard, who says that the Gendarmerie has been able to reduced its annual IT budget by 70 percent without having to reduce its capabilities.

“Moving from Microsoft XP to Vista would not have brought us many advantages and Microsoft said it would require training of users,” said Lt. Col. Guimard. “Moving from XP to Ubuntu, however, proved very easy. The two biggest differences are the icons and the games. Games are not our priority.” *You tell me, sir😀 *

I wonder how much rupiah the Polri can save by using F/OSS😉

*I’m quite sick today. This quick post is all I can write at this moment*
