Nej. Sprængfarlig læsning. *Puha* Det er et langt brev, men for jer, der
gerne vil påvirke danske politikere, er det læsningen værd. Der er mange
gode argumenter i brevet.

Peru har åbenbart en lov på vej, som påbyder det offentlige at benytte fri
software. Microsoft synes ikke det er sjovt og har sendt et lobbybrev, der
kommer med en masse påstande (FUD).  Dette brev bliver fuldstændigt jordet
- enten med grundige argumenter eller (hvad værre er) brevet selv!

Brevet er underskrevet af en kongresmand (men jeg tror ikke, han har
skrevet det selv: Nogle af vendingerne ser _lidt_ for bekendte ud) og jeg
ville ønske, at Danmark havde politikere, der kunne sætte folk så grundigt
til vægs. DETTE er virkeligt et velformuleret dokument, der burde kunne få
politikere til at fatte, hvad det her drejer sig om (hvis de ellers havde
tid til at læse det).

Jeg overvejer, om vi skal have den oversat til dansk. Men det er nok for
stort et arbejde, og der er nok for få, som reelt vil læse dokumentet (og
som ikke ville læse den engelske version alligevel). Kan vi lave et dansk
sammendrag? En pressemeddelelse?

Der er nogle _ret_ gode bidder imellem:

  The basic principles which inspire the Bill are linked to the basic
  guarantees of a state of law, such as:

  * Free access to public information by the citizen.

  * Permanence of public data.

  * Security of the State and citizens.

  To guarantee the free access of citizens to public information, it is
  indespensable that the encoding of data is not tied to a single
  provider. The use of standard and open formats gives a guarantee of this
  free access, if necessary through the creation of compatible free
  software.

  To guarantee the permanence of public data, it is necessary that the
  usability and maintenance of the software does not depend on the
  goodwill of the suppliers, or on the monopoly conditions imposed by
  them. For this reason the State needs systems the development of which
  can be guaranteed due to the availability of the source code.

  To guarantee national security or the security of the State, it is
  indispensable to be able to rely on systems without elements which allow
  control from a distance or the undesired transmission of information to
  third parties. Systems with source code freely accessible to the public
  are required to allow their inspection by the State itself, by the
  citizens, and by a large number of independent experts throughout the
  world. Our proposal brings further security, since the knowledge of the
  source code will eliminate the growing number of programs with *spy
  code*.

[MS: Loven vil lukke jeres egen (ufri) softwareindustri]

  In addition, a reading of your opinion would lead to the conclusion that
  the State market is crucial and essential for the proprietary software
  industry, to such a point that the choice made by the State in this bill
  would completely eliminate the market for these firms. If that is true,
  we can deduce that the State must be subsidising the proprietary
  software industry.

[MS: Det er farligt at bruge fri software]

  Alluding in an abstract way to "the dangers this can bring", without
  specifically mentioning a single one of these supposed dangers, shows at
  the least some lack of knowledge of the topic. So, allow me to enlighten
  you on these points.


MS: "8. In addition, the alternative adopted by the bill (i)  is clearly
more expensive, due to the high costs of software migration, ..."

  ... Your first argument, that migration implies high costs, is in
  reality an argument in favour of the Bill. Because the more time goes
  by, the more difficult migration to another technology will become; and
  at the same time, the security risks associated with proprietary
  software will continue to increase.
