Default Egyptians decide Open Source is the Sphinx's bollocks

Open Sauce appears to be a major victor of the Arab Spring which led to a change of leadership in Egypt.

It appears that the nation which worked out how to build the world's largest public building with just copper tools, has decided that proprietary software is a bad thing.

Egypt is apparently drawing up plans to cast out the Voles, Oracles, Apples and other followers of Apep, into the Lands of the West in favour of a decent open sauce plan for its public software projects.

Hani Mahmoud, Minister of Communications and Information Technology made the decision as the government had to mull over the renewal of its partnership agreement with Microsoft.

Vole rules the people of Khem, as Set did after usurping the rule of Osiris. Now it seems that the Children of Egypt see open sauce as their Horus who will free them from the reign of the evil Pharoah Seth-Ballmer.

But he promised that this would be short term as the government was splashing out on encouraging the development of Open Sauce centres.

This includes the shift to cloud operations and training people to come up with business ideas packed full of open saucy goodness.

Apparently there will also be a plan to educate people about the wonders of open source software and free software.

While it is not bringing heaven on earth yet, it seems that the Egyptians are heading towards Amenti in the future.
