BlinxS establishment marks shift towards open source OS

The Director of Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) said open source software such as Linux is much needed by the sultanate as it is handicapped by the lack of skilled human resources in ICT and the high cost of operating systems (OS), application software and licensing in its attempt to implement e-Government.

Dr Hj Kassim bin Hj Daud added that Linux operating system offers alternative solution because of its low cost towards providing software as well as its reliability.
