Edubuntu Implementation

As you see, this is not a Dummy product that is no used as some Windows lovers may think.

Open Source solutions are a high TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) reducer, and also a great and very rich alternative rather than a high costs Windows architecture implementation.

As a proof, the Macedonia Ministry of Education and Science, London November 2007; started project Computer for ever Child.
