Decreto 1014 sobre el uso del software libre en el gobierno ecuatoriano

I got this via FSF Latin America, however it’s beeing reported in a few other places.

The Ecuador Government now has a free-software law and will pretty much mandate that its government uses free, open-source software only. They cite « technology sovereignty and autonomy » and the main concerns, among many others.

The Ecuador Ubuntu LoCo Team is also aiming at becoming official soon… coincidence ? I think not 🙂

Alcance libre, EcuaLUG and other sites mention the news. Esteban Mendieta even has an original scan of the signed law! (mirror)
