OpenOffice Booming in India

ZDNet UK reports India’s project to distribute FOSS CDs to its citizens continues to thrive. A CD containing Tamil-localized versions of OpenOffice, Firefox and other FOSS desktop apps will be distributed to 3.5 million Tamil speakers around the globe.

On June 21, a Hindi version of the CD will be released, with a much larger number of copies to be produced.

All 22 official languages of India will eventually have their own FOSS CD. Tens of millions of people will receive them.
