This article analyses the prospect of Linux adoption in the public sector. We conclude that the free operating system compares very favourable to common proprietary alternatives. Using Linux avoids the lock-in that typically results from opting for proprietary software, for its code as well as its interfaces are open. Using open source in the public sector also has positive effects on the software industry at large resulting in an overall improvement of a nation's economy.
