Venezuala Moves Towards Open Source

Slashdot reports that the latest news out of Venezuela (English translation) is a presidential decree that prioritizes open source over regular pay software. My family on my father’s side hails from Venezuela, and I won’t turn this into a political discussion (feel free to use the comments and Junto for that), but I will say this: President Hugo Chavez’s every move seems to manage to piss off U.S. interests. Supposedly, the first attempt at this decree was thwarted by non other than Microsoft.
