French National Assembly Embraces Open Source

Finishing my Ph.D. Thesis really hindered my touch with news, so here it goes, with 2 months' delay: The French National Assembly switched to GNU/Linux. I read about it in Menéame.net, referring to Barrapunto, referring to Slashdot, referring to PC Advisor, who covers the new (usual cycle of news for the Spanish audience, reading mostly Menéame.net).

The French Goverment also said that all Gov. documents should be available in ODF. This nicely relates to the shameful case of the UPV/EHU (my University).

The Spanish Congress, meanwhile, is still hooked to Windows XP.
