Well, great news for students and Brazil! :-) Apparently, the largest number of virtual PCs in the world (356,000 workstations!!!!! using Linux, of course! :-)) will be installed in many locations for the benefit of millions of children in Brazil...meanwhile, back in Canada, I have to beg and wait months to get a SINGLE computer for more than 50 students in science classes!!?! Yep, we are rapidly becoming a 3rd world country in terms of education, while other countries leapfrog ahead.
