Here in Spain, MS is reaching agreements with schools and public
institutions in order to provide almost at free of cost (just a symbolic
fee) their products (Windows, MS Office...). And the agreement also
includes staff training and tech support on their side. Turn-key
solution. All included. No FLOSS company can compete nor provide that

Kids will learn how to use MS products and so all government workers.

Not only in Spain, I'm afraid. Capitalism at its best.

Can't *anything* be done about it? I mean, the pushers have even managed to circumvent the bidding rules that generally bind government agencies -- by providing their lock-in-ware for free.
