54% of organizations in Finland use OSS

According to TNS Gallup (on behalf of Sun) 54% of organizations in Finland use Open Source Software. OSS penetration is high in all of the the Nordic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark) with average of 46%.

Sun believes that the increased demand for open source in general is driven largely by the global economic downturn. I am pretty sure the trend of OSS adoption will keep going north even when the economical situation gets better.

Marc Krellenstein has written a nice post about the myths of open source software that might help you to decide your policy about using Open Source (Search) Software in your organization.
