;, inspired by the 1995 "Sant'Egidio Platform" document. Bouteflika's plan aims at concluding his efforts of ending the civil war (Algerian Civil War), from a political and judicial point of view. He obtained large popular support with this referendum and has since instructed the government and Parliament (Politics of Algeria#Legislative branch) to work on the technical details of its implementation. Critics claimed that the plan will only grant immunity to members of the armed forces (Military of Algeria) responsible for crimes, as well as to terrorists (terrorism) and have argued for a plan similar to South Africa's "truth and reconciliation commission" to be adopted instead. Bouteflika dismissed the calls, claiming that each country needs to find its own solutions to ending painful chapters of its history. He has received large political support on this issue, from both the Islamist (Islamism) and the Nationalist (Nationalism) camps, and from parts of the Democrat (Democracy)ic opposition. All in all, Algeria's foreign policy under Bouteflika remains hinged on same axis as under earlier governments, emphasizing South-South ties, especially with growing Third World powers (China, South Africa, Brazil, etc.) and guarding the country's independence in decision-making visavis the West, although simultaneously striving for good trade relations and non-confrontational political relations with the EU and USA.

'''Impi Linux''' was a South African Linux distribution which focused on the enterprise and government sector. The project name originally referred to Impi meaning warrior in the Zulu language. In September 2005, Mark Shuttleworth invested R (South African rand)10 million in return for 65% of Impi Linux. Company history Impi Linux has a long history, but has managed to transform from an open source project into a company. The project started from a discussion on the South African Gauteng Linux Users Group, GLUG. The first meeting in late 2001 was held at Andre Coetzee's home and got the project off to a slow start with more discussions about the name of the distro than that of its would-be technical merits. Interestingly, one of the names initially put forward was Ubuntu (Ubuntu (philosophy)). Attendees of the first meeting were: Andre Truter, Ross Addis, then chairman of GLUG, Andre Coetzee of Cubit Accounting, Craig Main, Mischa Capazario, Eugene Grimsdell, Norio De Souza, Andrew McGill, Laurens Steenkamp and others, all members of GLUG. Customised releases In June 2005, Impi Linux delivered a customized version of the distribution to Exclusive Books, a large South African book retailer for use on the point of sale terminals. Exclusive Books continue to use the distribution in all of their stores across South Africa and in Nigeria WikiPedia:South Africa Dmoz:Regional Africa South Africa Commons:Category:South Africa
