Way back in March, I helped out on a sales call on the Oregon State Government down in Salem. It’s taken forever for the deal to close, but our partners, Propylon, won the business, against determined competition, and from what I know of this domain I suspect that they weren’t the lowest-cost offering either. There’s some Sun business in there too. Propylon’s legislative drafting system builds on OpenOffice.org in a seriously cool way; it’s exactly the kind of thing we thought we were enabling when we were designing XML. I wish I got to do more sales calls.
