I'm looking out for some good examples of how Free/Libre and Open Source 
Software could help bridge the "digital divide", particularly in the 
context of the less-affluent countries. Specially in South Asia or the 
rest of Asia.

If you could offer any pointers or suggestions, I'd be grateful.

In particular, the issue of computer obsolence seems to be a critical 
subject. But what with quite a few GNU/Linux distros seemingly going the 
bloatware way? Regards, FN
