US-Regierung gegen Open Source

Also, Deti, scheinen sich die Wahlspenden für gewisse Spender bezahlt zu machen. Die US-Regierung diktiert Asien, dass man dort Open Source nicht zu unterstützen habe, wie ICTD news berichtet.

---- WSIS: Delegates fail to agree on open-source 'support'
A three-day meeting that brought together Asian governments, organizations, companies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) ended with the approval of a declaration that, among other things, calls for encouraging the development of open-source software. A draft of the declaration had called for open source to be "supported" but was changed after objections from the U.S. government delegation. The U.S. opposition was largely perceived to be support for its domestic software companies and in particular Microsoft Corp., said officials from other governments on the sidelines of the conference. After a short debate with a number of countries, including Pakistan, that wanted the original language to remain, all sides finally reached agreement and the declaration was changed to read: "Development and deployment of open-source software should be encouraged, as appropriate, as should open standards for ICT (information and communications technology) networking."
