Linux City in Korean

By Derek Sooman on
The Korean government is planning to set aside a city and a university that will make open-source software like Linux the mainstream. The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) has unveiled the scheme of building up the city and university, which will operate as testing areas for open-source programs. Open-source software will be used as the main operating infrastructure.

"The test beds will prompt other cities and universities to follow suit through the showcasing of Linux as the major operating system without any technical glitches and security issues," MIC director Lee Do-kyu said.
