Hi Community, i found an nice free Video abaouth the development of free software in poor countries.

This Documentary shows the Benefits of Free and Open Source Software for development countries.

The crew of independent producers who made the film went to nearly a dozen countries around the world to see how the adoption of FOSS presents opportunities for industry and capacity development, software piracy reduction, and localization and customization for diverse cultural and development needs.

Stories from The Codebreakers include computer and Internet access for school children in Africa, reaching the poor in Brazil, tortoise breeding programmes in the Galapagos, connecting villages in Spain, and disaster management in Sri Lanka. The documentary also includes interviews from key figures around the world.

This Video was produced by the Asia Pasific Development information Programme.
