Chileans protest Microsoft deal with Government

Rolando Martinez writes "Last May, the Chilean Government got a 40% discount on licenses of Microsoft products. The trade-off? A deal where Microsoft will provide a “Digital home” to all citizens, based on Live. Things can get worse: they'll set the comunication standard with the government not only for PC's but also to mobile phones. Since this deal was known, there's been a reactiononthewebneverseen before. A site to coordinate all this efforts is up, including channels in Flickr, You Tube and Last.FM. Even a letter to the President is on the way. You can sign it here."
