EU Commission Study Finds OSS Saves Money

From Slashdot:

“Groklaw has up a story about an EU Commission’s recent findings on the costs savings available from using Open Source Software. From the article: ‘Costs to migrate to an open solution are relevant and an organization needs to consider an extra effort for this. However these costs are temporary and mainly are budgeted in less than one year. The major factor of cost of the new solution - even in the case that the open solution is mixed with closed software - is costs for peer or ad hoc training. These are the best example of intangible costs that often are not foreseen in a transition.’”
