The Dutch Ministery of Finance has launched it's new website at www.minfin.nl
The new website is using the open source content management system Hippo CMS. This is in line with the desire of the Dutch government to migrate as much as possible to open source software and open standards by the end of 2006. The usage of open source and open standards raises the freedom of choice, cooperation and effectiveness of information systems.
The new website contains about 25.000 pages, and has around 10.000 visitors each day. A popular part of the site is the weblog of the Minister of Finance, mr Gerrit Zalm, which receives around 5.000 visitors each day.
