Support for Open Source Software

Ray Anthony Roxas-Chua III, Chairman of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), told today that Open Source Software (OSS) should be supported and promoted as an alternative to proprietary software. Filipinos need to be aware about OSS and its benefits, as they are cost-effective, secure and relatively easy to use. I believe this is a better option than using pirated proprietary software. No to piracy!

CICT leads in the promotion of OSS by advocating and promoting OSS in its projects such as the eLGU, iSchools and eSkwela.
