It looks like Government of India taking open source more and more seriously. Allahabad (a city in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh) court boasts using of open source and standards on their website.

Many documents on site require use of Openoffice to open documents. According to their FAQ, it recommends using, "Linux, Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice.org softwares as they are Open Source softwares".

It also uses RSS syndication for its headlines/Judgement Headlines.

This is great news for all open source fans out there. I am sure more people and Government will move to open source (open standards) and its application.
