WordPress on free.fr

As announced on Freenews, WordPress is now a one-click install on free.fr.
Free is one of the ISP leaders in France. Their services include dial-up Internet access, DSL (up to 8 Mbps), and free website hosting (packed with PHP and MySQL).
Given that Free hosts millions webpages, it’s unclear how many of their users will discover and install WordPress, but they seem likely to count in the thousands! (Moreso when Free realises there’s a French localisation file available for it…)

  2. Recently, France Telecom bought out Equant Minority. Equant Minority apparently had a very bad year, and France Telecom will be loaning the company 250million to get out of it’s slump in 2005. Isn’t that nice of them?

    So, it remains unclear who will be the king of France in the ISP arena. Certainly, providing Word-Press via a one-click install should help attract bloggers on a budget.
