Mandriva apparently back in the Nigerian saddle again


Okay, remember a small over a week ago when the CEO of Mandriva François Bancilhon sent an open j’accuse! letter to Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer  saying that Microsoft convinced the Nigerian government to use Windows on its computers instead of Mandriva Linux even though Mandriva and Nigeria already had a deal? 

Well apparently "the government agency funding 11,000 of these schoolroom PCs wants them running Mandriva." I’d be interested to know whether or not this change of heart came about because of Bancilhon’s letter or if someone at the top of the food chain saw that the order was changed to Microsoft program and was like "what in the hell does the night-time shift faction think they’re trying to pull here?"
