Submission + - Quebec's RRQ being sued for not considering OSS. (cyberpresse.ca)

Quebec writes: "Cyrille Béraud, in charge of Savoir-Faire Linux is suing the Régie des rentes du Québec in the province's highest court. He is contesting the fact that the governement administred office is about to spend 700,000$ to upgrade its workstations to Vista without tenders and without considering alternatives.

The document submitted to the Cour supérieure sustains the fact that Vista is so different from Windows 2000 (the actual operating system in use at the RRQ) that you cannot call it an upgrade but a replacement.

The author of the article is saying that this is a first in North America and that we heard similar stories in Europe."
