Iceland’s public sector IT moves towards open source

The Inquirer - Open Source Software is finding favour on the Icelandic government scene with the announcement that all of its public administration organisations will adopt it.

Tryggvi Björgvinsson is the head of the project and said that Iceland's adoption of open source software will start in major cities like the capital, Reykjavik and include all government ministries and the National Hospital.

It is likely to be a gradual move and build on work already done, while fostering an environment full of cooperation and knowledge sharing.
