Bangalore One is a major e-governance project, which went to Microsoft, in Bangalore, India.

It appears that a group of technical people, including some expats (Indians based overseas) have now gone to court, challenging the manner in which a huge contract was awarded to Microsoft.

It's nice to see citizens -- and those not necessarily involved with Free Software/Open Source themselves -- waking up to the implications of proprietorial software in the Third World.

The information I posted is based on what I received. I don't have additional details, but this seems like one development that needs to be kept track of. FN
