"For example, donations to educational initiatives require
installing and teaching Microsoft products. It is similar to
another story line reported by Roy Shestowitz. My informant told me
that she was fortunately able to point out to the President that
this was against Brazil's sovereignty and interest, and is one of
the reasons that President Lula came to FISL, to show is support
for the freedoms that "software livre" (aka free software, aka open
source) mean to Brazil.
"Would that all Presidents and all ministers of all countries
were so concerned about the sovereignty of their nation and the
fiduciary care of their people!"
