The Netherlands - Where Marijuana and Open Source are both Ubiquitous.

Matt Assay has once more delivered some great info - this time on the openness of the Dutch to.... open source! The Dutch government is apparently running a wealth of open source as of this year. Matt shares a map of all the open source products the Dutch are running and offers an English translation of it. Very enlightening!

Matt couldn't have put it better, "Lest you think this move to open source is inspired by a cloud of cannabis smoke, the report also mentions significant improvements in interoperability (31 percent), cost reduction (8 percent), and quality improvements in the municipal governments (22 percent).

If that's what open source delivers, pass the bong!"
