“Mr Chavez won 54% of the vote, the electoral council announced, with turnout at about 81%.”
Venezuela is one of the South American countries with a pro-FLOSS government policy. In the last five years use of GNU/Linux has doubled, according to NetApplications (Web stats). The longer Chavez remains in power the greater the hold GNU/Linux will have in government and the longer GNU/Linux will be displayed to students.
Chavez’ chief competitor also supports education and approves of some of the reforms done in Brazil. That should mean that two large and powerful political organizations both embrace FLOSS and GNU/Linux in Venzuela.
