France has truly made a reputation for its attempt to fight DRM and above all Apple’s dominance with iTunes/iPod and its use of DRM. But that’s not all, it has now converted the entire French national assembly to open source. It will now use Linux, OpenOffice and Firefox instead of the more commercial alternatives, thus Microsoft Windows and MS Office. Exactly what distribution they’ve chosen the article doesn’t say, but we can’t help wondering if it’s Ubuntu once again. We know that more countries have been thinking of doing the same, or already have, and the current trend seems to be moving toward open source.
