Although I do not agree with the tone (unscrupulous) of the petition,
I do agree with the main message, ie, in expanding the government's
use of free software. We don't need to shun propriety software, but
where it is appropriate it is a good idea to go with the open source.
The RMS recommendation was unnecessary in the petition and so is the
software vendors bashing. Any czar appointed should be a
non-controversial person who can reach out to all and most importantly
is concerned about the bottom line of the nation.
