http://ubuntuforums.org – Quote: April, a French advocacy group on free software, is approaching the members in the French Parliament to get them to select Ubuntu for their office PCs. French MPs are able to choose between using either this free and open source operating system or a proprietary operating system. The group is asking its members and volunteers to contact French MPs and to explain them the importance of choosing Ubuntu over the proprietary system. "The main goal is to make them aware of the political and ethical consequences of their choice", explains Jeanne Tadeus (Hardware)
