Gujrat - Adopting FOSS at very good rate

I am very proud that who so ever doing this work , is really doing good for Gujrat State,
3 days back, I had a conversation with my friend, Fortunately this  friend believe is FOSS but his company mainly work in non-FOSS (specially .NET). when my friend's company approached in Gujrat state, Gujrat Govt asked for Ubuntu Support, Which is really a very good sign.
One of the website of Gujrat says -

" This form has been tested successfully with Firefox version 3.6, OPERA and Google Crome. But found to have problems with old versions of Internet Explorer. Hence it is requested and suggested to use only Firefox Browsers to fill in the data. "

There are many state govt are adopting OpenSource Solution. FOSS vendor has good time , Please go in Gujrat and give them good solutions.

Other story I came to know by secret source (whose name I won't declare) that Unfortunately  KVS is trying to adopt some .NET based solutions. NCERT is a big time supported of FOSS (see SchoolOS etc) but KVS and CBSE must show support for FOSS.
( -> 1073 schools known as Kendriya Vidyalayas controlled by  KVS ()
