    Prime Minister's former aide arranged Microsoft donation to Finnish schools

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Mikko Alkio, the new State Secretary at the Ministry of Employment and the
    | Economy, who had previously served as aide to Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen
    | (Centre), was a key instigator of a donation from Microsoft of computer
    | software to Finnish schools.
    | Alkio was still working as manager for information society relations at
    | Microsoft a couple of weeks ago when Prime Minister Vanhanen visited the
    | United States.
    | During his US visit, Vanhanen met with Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates,
    | who promised Finnish schools a free package of the Windows Live@edu
    | service platform.

    Microsoft employees spreading the poison from the inside, as usual. Novell,
    Yahoo, XenSource, Nokia...

    It's part of broader corruption, with a chair at Findland being fired/pressured
    out for not locking the OOXML boot. Revolting.

    | This surprising result was the outcome of a lenghty discussion on whether or
    | not it was fair to those members that had submitted several more
    | controversial comments earlier that - without consensus on the compromise
    | that had been worked on for months - these comments would not be included.
    | This included some fundamental comments such as the mandatory use of ISO date
    | codes, exclusive usage of the Gregorian calender (according to ISO 681),
    | problems with intellectual property rights, etc). In addition some felt that
    | during the process they had agreed on many comments to be ameliorated
    | ('censored') in order to come to that same compromise. Without that
    | compromise they would like to submit the original versions. The committee
    | subsequently failed to get consensus on sending all comments. Therefore it
    | will now not share any of its findings with ISO. * * * * *
