Open Source Rolls On Again

It's probably obvious from previous posts that I think Open Source software provides an interesting avenue for the Region to develop its information systems and that even commercial GIS software companies should consider porting their excellent packages to run on Open Source systems. Today, the owners of Symbian, which powers hundreds of millions of devices around the world (e.g. many Nokia phones) announced that their software is now Open Source. By doing so Symbian is now tapping into creative energy and development talent from around the globe.
