| Userful, ThinNetworks, and Positivo announced that they had been selected to 
| supply 324,000 virtualised desktops to schools in all of Brazil's 5,560 
| municipalities.  
| This initiative would provide computer access to millions of children 
| throughout Brazil. It is a historical achievement being: the world's largest  
| ever virtual desktop deployment; the world's largest ever desktop Linux 
| deployment; and a new record low-cost for PCs with the PC sharing hardware 
| and software costing less than $50 per seat.    


"I’m thinking of hitting the OEMs harder than in the past with anti-Linux. ...
they should do a delicate dance"

Freedom Walk: A walk to claim, ensure and preserve freedom

,----[ Quote ]
| Free software had remained a technological and an economic issue in the state
| of Kerala and it had been very successful in being so. A team of four people
| decided to take the fundamental principle of the freedom behind free software
| and take this message of freedom to the masses in Kerala. They decided to
| project free software as an empowering agent to change the lives of people
| and in solving social, environmental and technological issues. They wanted to
| take free software and the freedom behind it to the common man in Kerala.
