City Of Austin Migrating To OpenOffice.org

An anonymous reader on slashdot wrote "NewsForge.com has a story up this morning about the City of Austin and the results of their pilot program on OpenOffice.org. The bottom line is this: they have found that more than 80% of the city's 5K desktops can use OO.o instead of MS Office. Let the migrations begin!" I would just like to give props to my hometown of Austin for leading the charge in this country to migrating government to a cheaper, more secure alternative to proprietary software. Can you image the amount of money our country would save if it utilized free software more widely?
