moulin, French for windmill, is our attempt to improve the access to basic information and reference material in developing countries by making it possible to access Wikipedia, the world’s largest, free encylopedia, offline.
Basically, moulin is a fully interactive, offline version of the entire Wikipedia (without pictures) on a CD!
The initial French version consists of the entire French Wikipedia: 404,903 articles all fitting on an ISO 554MBs big.
Why? Most people in the developing world live without access to the basic reference tools that can be used to enrich life. For the price of a CD-ROM and access to a computer the benefit of Wikipedia can now be shared.
