The City Council of Madrid will distribute 544M Eur in Sun Software for free

Yesterday I saw in the news this headlines ‘ The City Council of Madrid will distribute software for citizens and enterprises for free’. The City Council has got an agreement with Sun Microsystems to distribute for free three million copies of StarOffice 7 and Java Desktop System. The market value of the agreement is 544 Million Euros.
skeptic as I am about politicians, I thought I would need tons of papers and bureaucracy. If I’m lucky then I would receive the software some weeks later.
But no, I just connected here with Internet Explorer (Firefox does not work…), filled the form, and started downloading!!!
