Venezuela buys 1 mn. Linux laptops
The BBC reports that, as part of a $3bn (£1.66bn) bilateral trade deal with Portugal, it will be buying one million low-cost laptops for its schoolchildren.
Portugal is manufacturing the blue and white laptops under licence from Intel and the machines are broadly based on the design of Intel’s Classmate computer, which will also sport digital cameras and a broadband net connection, as well as running a version of Linux (what else? Ed.) developed in Venezuela.
