Josh Dressel's Open Source story on ZDNet

Friend from my days in Olympia, a fellow Evergreen student into open source software. He is now with the WA Department of Natural Resources ( DNR ) as IT support. He responded to a dept request for cost cutting ideas with a switch to open source software that would save the state 1.8 million dollars. He has since encountered resistance for his efforts from dept management. ZDNet has done this story: Washington state rejects open source.
