Macedonia Deploys 5,000 Ubuntu Desktops in Schools

vladoboss writes "The latest GNOME Journal is running a story about the deployment 
of 5000 Ubuntu desktops in public schools. The Republic of Macedonia is 
a small country in Southern Europe with a population of around 2 million. 
Internet penetration is only around 5% and software piracy rate is rampant. 
Also, the government does not play any major role in the development of 
the ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and a private sector 
is dominated by Microsoft technologies. Given the circumstances, one would 
not expect any free software related stories to make the headlines. Yet 
the presence of a small volunteer organization by the name Free Software 
Macedonia is making a big difference in this small country."
