Open source software and development

This page in:

Was walking down the hall upstairs and came across “Open Source Software: Perspectives for Development” by Paul Dravis. Still leafing through it, but the ‘open’ vs. ‘proprietary’ software debate is sure to play an increasing role in future development discussions. This short note includes case-studies from Brazil, Tajikistan, India, and Laos.

Also of interest?: a recent World Bank event, held in collaboration with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society of Harvard Law School, Oracle and IBM, on “Evolving to Open ICT Ecosystems.”

Comments or examples of open source solutions that have had a development impact in low-income countries?
