Free and Open Source Software

The federal government should use free and open source software (FOSS) such as the Ubuntu operating system and the OpenOffice office suite whenever these products are competitive with similar commercial software. This would result in substantial monetary savings on licensing fees for commercial software with no loss of productivity.
