French Parliament Run By Linux Fanboys

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Looks like the French love their Linux. Either that or all the Vista talk scared them off. Starting in June members of the French parliament will be ditching their Windows machines for Linux. Roughly 1,154 parliamentary workstations will be running the open source OS and using software (along with Firefox as their Web browser) in an effort to save some cash. I doubt they'll be using Linutops, but this goes to show Microsoft that pretty much anything you can do with Windows, you can do (cheaper) on Linux.
