    Famelix and the dangers of combating Windows

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | As with any GNU/Linux distribution, exact figures for use are hard to come by
    | for Famelix. However, other users of the distribution include 62 military
    | units, and schools and digital inclusion centers throughout South America. On
    | its home site, the distribution has had more than 22 million downloads -- at
    | least 14 million of them in the last 12 months, thanks mainly to the first
    | releases to support German, English, and Italian in addition to the original
    | Spanish and Portugese. By any standard, the distribution seems a success.

    Download != install.

    Just because millions of people were curious enough to download it doesn't
    mean that most won't delete it afterwards.
