Finishing the Egyptian Revolution – IT

Egyptians have died for their revolution and many find the recently adopted/foisted constitution horrific. So, too, do FLOSSies view the plan to “upgrade” IT in Egypt by throwing more money at M$.
“At a cost of more than 43 million dollars, activists such as Abdel Rahman Mansour from the We are all Khaled Sayeed and human rights’ organisations such as the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights say it is a waste of money, considering the availability of Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and Egypt’s current economic state.”

It’s time Egypt come to a consensus on their constitution and, if they want freedom, kick M$ out of the country.
