I guess if you want to buy an iPad in France, now is a good time to do it!

An iPad or any other mobile OS based device, including your telephone
:-) (the tax, if finally passed into law, should also affect
WindowsMobile phones) - the project targets embedded OSes not designed
to run on "normal" PC hardware. Obviously, the definition retained at
present is a nonsense in itself and shows just what a poor understanding
French MPs have of operating systems and IT in general (or rather what
they have been cleverly misled to understand).

The current French government needs money, big time - the
mobile/embedded market is still fairly bouyant - what better way to
generate a revenue stream to fill the depleted coffers ? ;-)
