Some may argue that there will not be a “year of desktop GNU/Linux” etc. but there definitely is a day, in Italy at least.
Italy is one of the hot spots for GNU/Linux globally. It has a huge number of LUGs and the government of Italy has made much use of FLOSS:
- in schools,
- in parliament, and
- legally, the government of Italy prefers FLOSS, although there are dinosaurs dragging their feet…
You can even find a map of Italy with linux-friendly suppliers in every region.
