Je me souviens … l’accord de partage de l’utilisateur

Facil, an open-source community based in Québec, is suing the Québec government for buying Microsoft software when free alternatives are available. Facil’s press release
says, in part, “From February to June 2008, FACIL has noticed sales of
proprietary software for more than 25 million dollars. These purchases
were made for products offered by large multinational enterprises, with
no regard to suppliers in Quebec. … While most of the developed
countries have started, a few years back, migrating their technological
infrastructures to Free Software, Quebec’s public administration is far
behind.” Some applaud Facil’s move. Others, not so much.
