Very interesting! Look what I ran into:

FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open-Source Software)                                	

We encourage use of  	Free/Open Source solutions. Though at ECI and
State level, databases are  	consolidated in Oracle, we encourage
smaller databases at the levels of  	ERO/DEO to be in MySQL, Postgres
etc. We are big supporters of  	OpenOffice.Org. Election Machinery
across the country is also encouraged to  	use freeware like IrfanView
for Imaging, GRASS, MapServer, Google Maps API  	etc. for GIS etc. Our
databases  	are mostly XMLised now, and in this section also, we have
released most of  	the databases in XML format rather than any
proprietary format.
