The Guardian: Ignoring open source is costing us dear

I found a great article in the Guardian today by Victor Keegan about how ignoring open source software (mainly Linux and Firefox) is costing the UK significant amount of revenues. What I found most interesting is that the author found a prevailing attitude toward open source as "anything that is free can't be any good." If the UK is getting ready to save some money with Linux and Firefox, wait until they realize that they can reduce their networking costs too using Vyatta! You can read the full article here.
