"French authorities will give out 175,000 USB memory sticks
loaded with open-source software to Parisian high-school students
at the start of the next school year.
"The sticks will give the students, aged 15 and 16, the freedom
to access their e-mail, browser bookmarks and other documents on
computers at school, home, a friend's house or in an Internet
café--but at a much lower cost than providing notebook
computers for all, a spokesman for the Greater Paris Regional
Council said Friday.
