Dear Editor,

The European Commission has shown a great interest in Open source and free software, often referred in Europe as "Libre software".

Under the IDA program (IDA stands for Interchange of Data between Administration), the European Commission has ordered a study about the use of open source software (Linux, etc.) in the European public sector.

This study is now available on the European Commission IDA site: http://europa.eu.int/ISPO/ida/ (the link is in the "Highlights" left column).
