IN - India's State of Kerala trying to eliminate Microsoft from use in public institutions.

(CNET)
In a new attack on multinational corporations, the Communist government in India's southern state of Kerala is campaigning to eliminate Microsoft from use in public institutions, just weeks after it imposed a ban on Coca-Cola and Pepsi. As part of a drive against "monopolistic" organizations, schools and public offices across the state are being encouraged to install free software systems instead of purchasing Microsoft's Windows programs.
