That's an interesting figure.  Our faculty is starting a project aimed at
helping several developing countries in Asia improve their electronic
infrastructure for dissemination the law.  Between Christmas and New Year last
year (we're dedicated, what can I say), three of us made our initial visit, to
government offices in Vietnam.  It struck me that there is real interest in
improving dissemination, and that shifting away from a proprietary software
base would give their efforts a big boost.  It looks like others may see
things in the same way.

(I'm the biggest Linux/Unix fan in the group, so this should be read as my
personal opinion, not that of the research group.)
