    Oh yes it does. eg: Open source software strategy | European Commission

    Considering that companies such as Microsoft will give away their OS for free to corporates in exchange for paid support contracts, it is not dissimilar in the way that open source works.

    It'd be interesting if it was feasible to measure open source contributions, no doubt the US decimates everyone else on that measure along with everything else tech related.

    "EU" being "pro" open source is in no small part a move against US tech dominance, would it cannibalise its own market if Microsoft was a EU company?
