Support the move by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts toward free software. Comments are due by Friday.

Massachusetts has released a policy which is very supportive of the free software community.

The policy commits them to storing data and conducting government business in file formats that are free and open. We commend the Commonwealth for moving in this direction.

Proprietary software companies who stand to lose from the policy have been loudly complaining about it. Massachusetts will be reading e-mail comments on the issue until September 9th, 2005. Please take a moment to send them some positive feedback at <>. Let them know why you think free and open formats are a good idea. CC us on the email at <>. We'll post a selection of the comments online.
