Korea Plans to Build Linux City, University

Filed under
Linux

The Korean government plans to select a city and a university late next month where open-source software like Linux will become the mainstream operating programs.

The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) Wednesday revealed the scheme of building up the city and university, which will operate as test beds for the open-source programs.

``We will start to receive applications next week. After screening candidate cities and universities, the test beds are likely to be decided by late March,’’ MIC director Lee Do-kyu said.

Lee said that the project will be kick-started just after the decision of the city and university, toward which end the ministry earmarked 4.1 billion won for this year alone.
