Open Source Detroit

Another way we can invest in ourselves is by having the city use open source software. It is considerably less expensive than proprietary software. (The licenses are free but there are maintenance and other costs.) It would help Detroit's image as an emerging technology city, cut down our budget and along with strong policies and procedures put our finances back on the right track once and for all. I would also like to see Detroit students in high schools and community college working on improving the software in their classes and graduating to be the people who get the jobs to maintain and improve the software.
There is so much to do in this area for the city and it is all full of possibilities.
