Chile's Linux Thin Client Installation: 1800 Schools Now

Last year, it was reported that Edulinux, a distribution of Linux based on the K12linux builds with LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project), would be installed in 600 schools in Chile (see link). Now, according to the Edulinux website, they are planning to install Edulinux 2006 in 1800 schools in Chile (link).

If previous estimates of the number of workstations hold true, this would represent some 30,000 older computers to be reused as thin clients in Chile. Wow.
