Peru may move to open-source software

Norway has already started cutting the ties with Microsoft - now Peru may be moving towards open-source software as well and Microsoft is peeing their pants asking them to reconsider...

Afraid that Peru may adopt a bill decreeing the use of open-source software in all government systems, Microsoft apparently enlisted the American ambassador in Lima to help try and convince the Peruvians to kill the legislation.

Regarding Peru's politicians consideration of bootlegged software. If you travel down Av. Wilson, in Lima, you can buy anyone's software for less than $20.00 and it's no secret.
