"With open source, there is no intellectual property. Anyone can use it and all your ideas become public domain. If nobody can make money from it, there will be no development and open source software quickly become outdated."
--Dr Sitthichai, Minister of Ministry of ICT--
I know that you're a programmer but you know nothing regarding opensource.
Nothing to say... -_-'
Please look here.
It seems that everything is resolved without a hitch after opensource people went to see the minister. He admitted that he did not know much regarding opensource. And now he knows and is willing to support opensource, including OLPC (Children machine).
