Solaris in Japan

Solaris for E-Government in Japan: This is very cool. Akira Ohsone, the leader of Sun's Tokyo Software Center, blogs about about an article in the Nikkei yesterday reporting that the Japanese government has decided to use open source in its e-government initiative. The first implementation includes Solaris systems at a facility in Okinawa. So, Solaris won a government deal because it's open source. This is the second government initiative in Japan with Solaris, and Akira has a link to the first one from last summer as well. The two initiatives are unrelated, but can you spot the trend here? There's probably more to come about this.

Hi ... I'll pass your note to the team here. From what I understand, the systems they are putting in place are based on many, many Sun products. I'm just calling out Solaris since it's mentioned in the article. There will be more news on this very soon. :)
