Berlecon Research worked out several surveys on
use of ~open source~ in europes business.

detailed questions follow subjects like: which motivation drives, what
bussines model works, how is OS used in software org., political implications

The words "Open Sorce" and "Free Software" are used synonym,
nevertheless there is plenty of information for advocating Free Software.

in Germany 43.7% of establishments (business & NPO) use OpenSource
Software, in Sweden 17.7%, in the UK 31.5%.

The survey itself is published as PDF in english, the HTML still is in
