the United Nations sponsored International Open Source Network (IOSN).
"The new U.N. open source initiative, which offers Internet primers
on free and open source software and their use in education and government,
kicked off last weekend by supporting the slightly publicized Software
Freedom Day, which was Saturday. "On that day, we will make the world
aware of the virtues of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), and encourage
its widespread use," the IOSN said on its site. "We will set up stations in
public places to give away informational fliers and CDs with selected FOSS,
including TheOpenCD and a Linux Live CD."
