DoD, Intel Officials Bullish On Open Source Software; Government-wide Software Foundation In The Mix

Defense Department and intelligence community officials have been talking about open source software as the next great thing for government technology programs for years. Why all the love?

Speaking at a recent industry gathering, government officials described what they like about the software: it's affordable, flexible, and can be quickly modified by developers because they don't have to pay the licensing fees associated with commercial software.
