Well .. maybe half half - half politics - half belief .

Some things are still typically French - in a positive way .

Like closing shops during the day or all their "ridiculous" protesting - we could really learn something from them here in Germany - but then we just dont care enough & just want our peace ;) - which also isn't bad .

But a tendency away from MS towards OpenSource freedom might just be something fitting into the French mentality .


Highly IMOd ;)


Good Luck ;)
