Then it could work that if at least Mandrake 9.2 (as Rhoslyn posted a screenshot earlier this month) as a commercial offering of a Welsh desktop available in Wales got more exposure, then that's it, Microsoft would be getting unfair funding. (?) Phew!

How very convenient that Linux Emporium now run out of the Technium in Swansea. Even more conveniently, they offer Mandrake 9.2 :)

I suppose someone could drop a random email to one of the AMs responsible (bearing in mind all their mail probably gets filtered through secretary-2.0 first).

I'm working with Mandrake and hopefully Bwrdd yr Iaith, on an information strategy for media, organisations, politicians, etc If anyone has ideas, and addresses that would be useful, please let me know. I'm hoping to revamp Meddal, write a press release and a user friendly leaflet on Mandrake this weekend... so your contributions would be most welcome. The more information we get out on Welsh Linux the more pressure on MS and on ByI not to give them any money, not that y Bwrdd have got that kind of money anyway.

BTW Pcworld have stopped selling Mandrake... I'd thought of persuading them to do a high profile launch at their Bangor store. A well...

Diolch yn fawr, Rhos
