[Ubuntu-be] Oxfam shops

Hi all,

    I know they *used* to install Ubuntu in the Oxfam shop in Ans 
(Liège) because at the time they couldn't get Windows licenses. Now, 
they are able to sell Windows licenses and I believe they leave the 
choice to the customer. And what do you think uninformed people are more 
likely to choose? ...

Oxfam Solidarité ANS
Rue de la Station, 45
