"New Zealand will begin a test of a homegrown free and
open source desktop solution next month, with the Horizons Regional
Council to be one of the guinea pigs, according to the president of
the country's open source society.
"Don Christie told iTWire today that 14 government agencies had
joined the project which looked for an alternative desktop
solution, with each providing some financial input.
"The council in question is in the middle of the North Island.
Additionally, the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and New
Zealand Post will be part of the trial."
