Open Source untuk Windows … mencoba beralih ke open source

Sebetulnya dah lama mencoba untuk migrasi ke open source, namun apa daya – melawan arus itu ternyata sangat berat, karena sejak tahun 2006 udah dimulai untuk menggunakan salah satu distro linux yaitu mandriva, tapi ya tetep saja susah mengajak temen2 di office untuk ikutan migrasi ke opensource.

Nah sehubungan ada momen yang tepat yaitu adanya edaran dari pemerintah bahwa akhir 2011, seluruh SKPD sudah beralih ke open source atau menggunakan software legal, maka hari ini aku coba buatin listing opensource yang bisa berjalan di windows sehingga buat temen2 yang pengen mengenal opensource bisa mencoba donlut trus instal. Berikut daftar opensource yang aku peroleh dari http://www.opensourcewindows.org/
