European Commission study: FLOSS is key for ICT competitiveness
http://www.merit.unu.edu/

The European Commission has released a study about the economic impact of Free/Libre or Open Source Software (FLOSS) on the European ICT sector. It was prepared by a consortium of research institutions led by the Maastricht-based UNU-MERIT's Rishab Aiyer Ghosh. Looking at the impact of FLOSS on European competitiveness in ICTs, the study finds that such software is of great importance to the digital industry in Europe and several other parts of the world. It has already reached considerable market share in several fields, including web servers and operating systems. A large share of public and private sector organisations use at least some FLOSS.
