To Be or Not To Be...Open Source that is

A very interesting talk/discussion with a Ministry man none-the-less. Douglas Harre posing the question "Do we need software agreements in the Open Source age?"

While the discussion began with a myriad of confusing numbers (number of schools, percentage breakdowns of primary/secondary/EC with/without computers etc.), it soon became more coherent when the financial investment the Ministry outs into teh software to run our TELA laptops.
Perhaps the most exciting suggestion Douglas made was could we introduce open source software to our TELA machines?

What do you all think?
