I've no asked to push one or another proposition,
I just said it is not done that they push ONE and ONLY, implicitely, by
ignoring alternate offers based on Mac or Linux:
if they are not the reseller themselve, they can (will) as gov inform the
citizens about available alternatives.

Mmm, sorry, IMHO this is another issue: for now the most important thing is
- we do need to inform the minister's department (fedict) about those wrong
- ask for implementing thos task by providing information on all the
concerned sites, because there are Mac and Linux solutions near Windows.
Mery Xmas Jan.
