+ - French students getting FLOSS on USB sticks->

The Only Anonymous Coward writes: The Paris-region (France) local government has started distributing 220 000 USB keys to students and teachers with Free and Open Source Software products on it, including Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org, VLC Player and 15 others. The goal is to 'reduce the digital divide', said Jean-Paul Huchon, President of Region Ile-de-France, who has attributed a 2.6 million EUR ($3.67M) budget for this operation. The USB stick is linked to a Netvibes.com-powered customizable Website. Not counting those who will erase the content to store Britney Spears songs (or worse!) on it, this may be one of the biggest exposure that FLOSS products could get with the younger generation.
