July 22, 2009 11:16 am





Novell, along with 70 companies, academic institutions, and other organizations including Red Hat and Oracle, have just announced a coalition to promote the use of open source by the federal government. The organization, known as Open Source for America, will be dedicated to serving as a centralized advocate to encourage broader U.S. Federal Government support of and participation in free and open source software.

Back in March John Dragoon, Novell CMO, wrote An Open-Source Presidency for advocating for open source adoption by the government. And, Novell government customers, like the United States Postal Service, Federal Bureau of Prisons and NASA, are all seeing the benefits that high-quality, low-cost and secure open source software provides.

Stay tuned for more to come from this group.
