Re: [ossig] FC2 Linux need to upgrade



Thanks Hussein,

I have feedbacks and many have sworn on debian in US and Europe but I
have not met any org implementing Debian in Malaysia successfully for

I would appreciate if the rest would be able to provide input on
implementation success in this region.
