Actually, I would presume so, since Liberta, if I remember correctly, a Thai
government effort. Well, why not ask our friend Phet here? : )
My friend was selling Liberta PCs in Carrefour etc. in Singapore sometime

Indeed one reason why I refuse to touch Windows Vista is the support for
DRM... btw, do you guys know that if you bought a COPY PROTECTED audio CD,
do not lose heart, because you can rip the songs right into OGG or MP3 using
