Re: [ossig] vendors encouraged to go open source



i still remember the tender specification for tabung
darah negara web implementation last few month, they
specifically stated they want ms-exchange and some
other ms product.

also the upm web based student info system last month,
they want oracle.

i think they should open the spec, and dont
specifically stated certain product.
