Subject: France: strong crypto available in newsstands

To show you how quickly the french situation is changing, here's a little info.

A major french computer paper magazine, called ".NET" (, is distributing in his June 99 edition (n 31, june 99, 35 FF = 6 $) around 50 Mb of strong crypto on the free CD-ROM (PGP in all freeware versions, Scramdisk, Mixmaster, JBN, and other things for Linux and Mac).

".NET" is available in all french newsstands.

Everything is moving here really fast. I think the match has been won, and I hope France is showing to the rest of the world the way in the crypto issue.
