Famelix and the dangers of combating Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| As with any GNU/Linux distribution, exact figures for use are hard to come by 
| for Famelix. However, other users of the distribution include 62 military 
| units, and schools and digital inclusion centers throughout South America. On 
| its home site, the distribution has had more than 22 million downloads -- at 
| least 14 million of them in the last 12 months, thanks mainly to the first 
| releases to support German, English, and Italian in addition to the original 
| Spanish and Portugese. By any standard, the distribution seems a success.      


All the big things are happening where people don't speak English. Sheesh. :-)
