Some open source advocacy is starting to be succesfull... later more...

In an reginal dutch news paper there was an article about usage of opensource by Municipalities. The articel mentioned that
they save about 450 euro fot every desktop. One worrying thing is that there perception is to much Linux=Opensource.
Anyway some tests where successfull.

Yesterday I tried to use KDevelop. It looks nice, but i'm not enthusiastic. I din't use the Project Mangager
correcty wich gave me lot of problems. Some of those problems are bugs I think. I need to investigate this futher.

found an interesting article here. About how Stanislav Petrov saved the world for disaster.
Really scary. It shows also IMHO how dangeres it is to depend on computers.
