concerned category of "extremely worried=97they will eventually kill free
software". 14% were "a little concerned", a tiny 6% were concerned "not at
all=97it will pass" and 1% had a different opinion. However, most of the

How do you feel about the idea of governments mandating the use of free
software in their
countries?free_software>

Freedom is a big word with a lot of weight on it. And while most migrating
governments are only mandating government use of free software, what would
you think if the use of free software was mandated through all major public
and private organisations as well? Is this more freedom or less?
