So, Uruguay apparently believes in educating their children. They have just completed providing a linux based computer for EVERY elementary school child in the ENTIRE country! Meanwhile, back in corrupt, illiterate Canada, politicans spend billions on 'consultants', (i.e. friends, relatives, consultants, lobbyists, etc.)

And then there is the Aurora, Colorado school district, supplying their students close to 2,000 linux netbooks! :-) Meanwhile, back in corrupt, incompetent Canada, a billion dollars wasted and not even anything remotely resembling a electronic health care system. And one can find many, many competent, responsible IT France! And need more evidence of the incompetent, criminal governments of Canada, wasting tax payers money, when open source solutions exist? Take a look here. Includes ehealth report, etc., etc.

Well, more schools are moving to linux, open office, etc. And of course, the London Stock Exchange has finally made some intelligent decisions in that they are ditching windows and moving to linux, following competent exchanges, such as NYSE, etc. And here's an interesting article about new Dell computers, with an 'instant on' Linux bootup, and people are spending 70% of their time using linux! :-)
And then there is the Dutch police force, which has wisely chosen to switch to linux! :-)
