Subject: Navy Navigates Open Source

In many days gone by, technology signoffs between government and 
industry were from Washington to Wall Street. This week's focus shows how 
much that direction has changed, with Open Source software vendors as well 
as Linux platforms facing a new course. Government wants to know more, 
a lot more, about what it might gain in moving away from proprietary 
labels toward Open Source, and our story, Navy To Study Open Source, has 
the details of a significant Navy-Open Source agreement to provide the 
answers. Another perspective on the solid business potential of Open 
Source comes in the form of a technology briefing, revealing new vendor 
moves to create NetBeans-based products.
