@mackiwg we are getting there!!
I think there is a critical mass effect. As soon as a critical mass of governments switch to open source, and contribute upstream, the software improves so rapidly that other governments will join too, and then those also contribute upstream etc.

During the time of the LiMux project, there was a small but constant amount of commits to LibreOffice by Munich city employees.

Thanks team especially Dr Wayne Mackintosh for developing this interesting course loaded with resources and activities . First time for me to hear about Personal Learning Environment (PLE). I enjoyed very much and thank you for the free certificate issued for the competency test.
All the very best for future participants.

Wow. This is huge news, and a milestone, for #Linux!

"Lenovo has announced that all of its ThinkStation desktop PCs and ThinkPad P series laptop will be available to buy with Ubuntu preloaded starting this summer."

It's not just the easier availability of hardware known to work "out of the box", it's also what this signifies. Lenovo would not do this if they did not see it as a good market opportunity. omgubuntu.co.uk/2020/06/ubuntu #Lenovo

Publishers/authors are trying to officially kill the Internet Archive torrentfreak.com/publishers-su

It's become very clear that these publishers and authors want to kill libraries and it would be a dangerous precedent if they win.

For example: libraries never needed permission to lend books, and these same publishers are trying to change that with this suit. techdirt.com/articles/20200519
