Obama counts on Sun
As you may already know, President Obama has asked me to prepare a paper on open source software for the new administration. Even the Brittons are aware of such amazing piece of news!
Heard that, Jonathan? He asked me, ME, to give advice, but worry not: the first point in my paper will be to open source the job of the first CIO of the history of the USA (we'll see if this is the way we can get rid of... I mean, that Jonathan will reach such a prominent post to serve our Country, although as you can read in the article from the BBC there are some people, wrong people, that believe this post is not useful).
Thanks to Computer Weekly, I really like the picture they used for their article. The one from the BBC is not bad either, but I like it most. It makes me younger...
Remember my words: "Open source does not require you to pay a penny to Microsoft or IBM or Oracle or any proprietary vendor any money." It is, you don't have to pay Microsoft, IBM or Oracle: you have to pay Sun, the only and truly Open Source Company! We will charge much less to the Government, and the company will be saved, so this is a win-win situation!
And when I say open source I mean Software (obviously) and hardware (see Jonathan's blog).
Being a Republican who supported Hillary, I'm really liking the new President. Live to tell!
