As a nice offset for the ridiculous anti FLOSS FUD coming out of SirsiDynix

So I’m sure most of you are aware that SirsiDynix had a paper leaked on wikileaks (their official line now is that it was never meant to be private anyway, which directly contradicts what a lot of people had been told).

I don’t want to devote much space to it, since others have done so already in a much more eloquent manner than I could. But a good round up of the situation is on the code4lib wiki.

In direct contrast to fear riddled, fact lacking scare mongering I saw this nice writeup on a koha workshop in Malawi. This is the kind of thing that Free Software allows, and to my mind a story of people being enabled to help themselves wipes out all the FUD profit hungry corporates can throw at the FLOSS community.
