"Akopia Inc., the world's leading provider of open source e-commerce software and services, welcomes the recommendations of a report into open source software published yesterday by the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC)."

"David Adams, Akopia's founder, chairman and CTO said, "Our government is being held hostage by proprietary software companies. It's time its eyes were opened to the quality and return-on-investment benefits of open source software, and we applaud PITAC's recommendations."

"The report advises on a technology-research strategy and a rationale for using open source software development as new model to answer America's high end computing needs."
