OpenOffice in Malaysia

I know OpenOffice 3.0.1 is out and I want to look for its release notes to see what issues are fixed. I stumbled upon a piece of information which is pretty surprising:

A significant number of Malaysian government bodies are using OpenOffice.

According to this link, there are 130K known OpenOffice installations in the Malaysian government, which translates to an estimated saving of RM12 Million (the report assumes comparable commercial product is RM950 a pop).

Another interesting list is here which shows known OpenOffice deployment in different countries. Look at it, and look at it closely. Can you identify where are friends of US? ;)
