FPT Linux Mirror in Vietnam


Thanks to pclouds for sharing this link with me.  I heard rumors about it but finally there is a FPT-sponsored Linux mirror in Vietnam.  That is great news!!!  Even better, the mirror is FAST!  I am installing Django as we speak.  Django was downloading at 635K/s, an amazing speed for Vietnam.  The fastest I ever downloaded for Gentoo packages was around 490K/s with Viettel over 3 and a half years ago.

It is nice to see a Vietnamese company supporting Linux in Vietnam.  GHP Far East and Vscapeone also sponsor a BSD/Linux Mirror of their own and now maybe Quang Truong’s ISP will consider helping us host more open source repositories as well.

The future looks bright for open source and BSD/Linux in Vietnam 🙂
