Microsoft Lobbies Hard Against Free Software use in Pentagon



Hej

Her er endnu en artikel om Microsofts angreb på OSS.

Open-Source Fight Flares At Pentagon.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A60050-2002May22.html

Et par interessante uddrag er gengivet her.

> A May 10 report prepared for the Defense Department concluded
> that open source often results in more secure, less expensive
> applications and that, if anything, its use should be expanded.

Det kunne være interessant at få fat i en sådan rapport. Er der
nogen, der ved, hvordan man gør det ?

Så er der den ubehagelige konstatering, at MS vil gøre os til
kriminelle, hvis vi bruger OSS. Det kunne være interessant at
få en offentlig udtalelse fra MS DK om dette. Vi er jo næsten
alle nød til at bruge MS-produkter ind imellem og vi kan jo
ikke være 100% sikker på, at der ikke også er OSS inden i
de andre produkter vi vi bruger.

> John Stenbit, an assistant secretary of defense and the Defense
> Department's chief information officer, said Microsoft has said
> using free software with commercial software might violate the
> intellectual-property rights of companies such as Microsoft. Stenbit
> said the issue is legally "murky."

Nedenstående bør sætte spørgsmålstegn ved det offentliges brug af
lukket software i forbindelse med etablering af offentlige
portaler. Danske eksempler på dette findes også. Det er simpelthen
økonomisk uforsvarligt af det offentlige at bruge lukket software.

> At the Census Bureau, programmers used open-source software to
> launch a Web site for obtaining federal statistics for $47,000,
> bureau officials said. It would have cost $358,000 if proprietary
> software were used, they said.

Det at ministerier og styrelser benytter lukket software til
at lave offentlige portaler og lignende, bør automatisk føre
til, at der indledes en undersøgelse af omkostninger fra
finansministeren og udløse en beskæring af det pågældende
ministeries eller styrelses budget til sådanne portaler.

Nedenstående viser helt klart, hvordan MS opfatter sikkerhed.

> Microsoft also said open-source software is inherently less secure
> because the code is available for the world to examine for flaws,
> making it possible for hackers or criminals to exploit them. Proprietary
> software, the company argued, is more secure because of its closed nature.

Ovenstående udtalelse fra Microsoft viser, at Microsofts indstilling
til sikkerhed er totalitær lukkethed. En sådan indstilling er uforenelig
med demokratiske principper og med indstillingen som sådan udgør MS en
trussel mod det danske samfund og den danske demokratiske model vi har
valgt i Danmark.

mvh.
