Open source saves Malaysia… money!

Colin Charles discusses the issue in his post “Open Source Saves Malaysian Government RM40 Million.”

(That’s $12 million US, a pretty impressive amount coming from software license fees.)

Charles’ source is the Open Malaysia Blog, whose original article I cannot access at the moment.

Fortunately, Charles provides the following informative quotes:

Savings on licensing fee alone by adopting have already exceeded RM12 million, which is based on the total installed seats of 12,760 at public sector agencies.


The top three applications being considered by most Public Sector Agencies are:
1. – Office Suite
2. Firefox – Web Browser
3. MySQL – Database using Open Source Technology
