Hi guys, can you give me some link regarding open source company? Some paper or success story, or anything. Before that, is it even possible that a company use 100% open source program to run all its need? Thanks

Hi,

The French Police use Ubuntu. I did a quick search on google and found this (http://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/2009/03/french-police-saves-millions-of-euros-by-adopting-ubuntu.ars) article.

Hope this helps you in what you are looking for.

redhat is open source, they don't distribute binaries for free but the source is open.
