,----[ Quote ]
| The Brazilian free software movement is in such high gear that it is almost
| impossible to keep up on all the new developments and projects that are
| happening throughout the country. Brazil is larger in size than the
| continental United States and has a population of almost 200 million people.
| Given the strong support of free software by the Brazilian government at all
| levels (federal, state and municipal).
| For example, a new technology being used is the Digital Boards project for
| the public schools. The board is almost 6-1/2 feet wide and it’s sensitive to
| the touch of a magnetic pen that is connected to a computer running Vix
| Linux, a distribution specially customized for educational proposes by the
| City Hall of Vitória, in the state of Espírito Santo.
