Today the Berner Zeitung published a summary of a discussion about the political motion for promotion of open source software in the canton of Berne. Marc Jost, EVP candidate for the elections next weekend, and I advocated the Free and Open Source Software movement and Marc Holitscher and Thomas Reitze from the board of Microsoft Switzerland defended their proprietary view. Since the text represents only a fraction of the arguments I suggest to listen to the full discussion (MP3, 57min, Swiss German).
