Just found this one in slashdot (http://slashdot.org/).
It looks like Mexico's entire school system is going with Linux...
| I work as the proyect leader of the "Scholar Net", a program that aims
| to bring computers and the net to every elementary and mid-level school in
| Mexico. We expect to install from 20 to 35 thousand labs per year to a
| total of 140,000 centers in the next five years.
| Due to matters of cost, reliability and configurability, we plan to
| use GNU/Linux to replace the propietary server options and, now thanks
| to GNOME, the propietary desktop application options.
