    Kind of an off topic, but not really. Elastix is the most important free software project from Ecuador so it is mention on this article.

    the nice thing is that in Ecuador the president support free software use in goverment for serveral reasons. Among others there are independece from provider and help local software companies grow.

    Regards,

    Rafael, it's great that your country has that policy. Not only do we not have such a policy in the United States, we have schoolteachers that act like the Gestapo and go around indoctrinating kids to believe that there is no such things as free software! I'll bet that this would never happen in your country.

    (U.S. Parents, if you are smart you will bring up your kids to NOT believe everything a teacher tells them. We have some very good teachers here, but also some extremely awful ones, and you never know which type your child is going to get!)
