Have you been neglecting our fabulous Planet?


If so, your loss.

It now sports a not-so-well-written 'blog post based on an email post 
and a forward from two different OSIA denizens (round of applause for 
OSIA, if your Australian business depends upon Open Source, hustle 
along to http://www.osia.net.au/ and sign up); the gist of it is that 
we're about to see a lot of hurt and frightend IT people as the BSAA 
and Microsoft resellers follow up on copyright "enhancements" in the 
wake of the FTA agreement:


Your opportunity is to get in ahead of the rush, and offer them FOSS 
alternatives to paying through the nose for software which they own but 
can't prove ownership for, or even going to jail.

Cheers; Leon
