To:		Franz Nahrada

These days Bino na Biso (BnB) presents the RULE-based "Liboke ya Congo"
(LyC) on Fikin, the most important trade show in Kinshasa/DRC. "Liboke ya
Congo" translates to something like "Box of Congo". This system is a Red
Hat 9 based operating system, installed using "Slinky" from The
RULE-Project, and therefore running on even outdated PCs with todays speed
and the most up to date applications like Abiword 2, OpenOffice 1.1, the
latest Acrobat Reader or Webbrowsers like Opera 7.5 and Firefox. "Liboke
ya Congo" includes a set of Lingala-localized applications. Most of the
work of translation and research has been done by BnB-staff in Kinshasa.

The "Liboke ya Congo" will help to bring IT-knowledge and better means of
communication to many people in DRC and its neighbour-countries. Also it
can be seen as an important step in building up a self-sustainable,
localized IT-culture.
