courteaudotbiz writes: In a court battle initiated more than 2 years ago, free software activists "Savoir Faire Linux" (Litterally "Linux know-how") won for the right to submit offers when the government of the province of Quebec, Canada (original french version), goes in public requests for submissions to replace its desktop operating systems and office suites, opening future replacement of MS Windows and MS Office in favor of Linux and Open Office, or any other operating system and office productivity suite. In his judgement, the magistrate said that the government acted illegally when it discarded the proposal of "Savoir Faire Linux" for replacing Windows XP with a Linux distribution.
