[ Thanks to LinuxNews Team for this announcement and link. ]
The Polish Parliament has joined the open-source community. Its offices have started the migration from PCs to an x-terminal based computer infrastrucure. 100 Linux-based x-terminals with the Intel Celeron processor and Linux operating system installed in flash memory are almost ready to work.
All day-to-day parliamentary administrative tasks will now be performed on Linux x-terminals with the StarOffice suite. Solaris will be used as a StarOfiice server, but many of parliament's network services, such as www, ftp, e-mail, and others are already being handled by Linux.
It is really important that in public institutions, which are spending public money, there is a real determination to find and implement the best solutions, in certainly more safe and less expensive ways.
