Abstract

Ce texte vise à circonscrire les fondements d'une politique gouvernementale à l'égard du logiciel libre et ouvert (open source software). Nous caractérisons brièvement l'ampleur du phénomène du logiciel libre et nous en analysons les avantages et inconvénients pour le gouvernement tant comme moteur du développement économique que comme grand utilisateur de technologies d'information et de communications. Nous concluons par un ensemble de recommandations à l'intention du gouvernement, tant de nature « politique économique et industrielle » que de nature « grand utilisateur » face au développement du logiciel libre et ouvert.
