Red Hat maps open source activity. France is #1

Filed under
OSS

Red Hat today published a new study together with Georgia Tech mapping open source activity across 75 countries. Officially called the Open Source Index (OSI), the final score is made of a number of factors including policies, practices in the Government, Industry, and Community. Topping the list current is France with a score of 1.35. Spain is second at 1.07, Germany third at 1.05.

The United States came in 9th overall according to the study, Canada came in 28th.

The idea of attempting to map open source use and activity is an interesting one. By the study's own admission the environment score is 'speculative'.
