With all due respect to Carrie Kirby, she really doesn't know all that much about open source; or she had to really dumb down the article for the purpose of being "neutral."  I am planning to scan the front page of the hard copy, because the Chron's on-line version really doesn't match the prominence of the front-page placement given to the hard copy.  If anyone wants to receive a copy of the scanned version, please raise your hand! 
The printed story is the same as the online version.

The real story, closely related to this, is the OpenDoc format. She
could have spoken about that, and perhaps about the smear campaign
against Peter Quinn, the Massachusetts State IT Director, for trying to
get his state to standardize on OpenDoc. OpenOffice 2 supports
OpenDoc, so it would have added a nice angle to the story.
