Japan’s Leading Software Distributor switches to OOo

The Newsletter Blog reports on an interesting Japanese company’s switch to OpenOffice: K.K. Ashisuto migrated its 650 employees recently.

The founder, Bill Totten, announced this decision on his corporate blog:

“Of course we continued some Microsoft license agreements that we judged to be absolutely indispensable for responding to the needs of our customers, but on a company-wide basis, OpenOffice is now our office software standard. As a rule, our employees now use only freely-available open-source software for creating documents, spread-sheets, and presentation materials.”
