A month ago a friend of mine told me that there was a project going on for free software deployment in schools and NGO's throughout Macedonia, a project led by USAID and MoES (Ministry of Education and Sciences). After a little research I found out that the project involved deployment of Ubuntu Linux, which as you may already know comes with GNOME as a default desktop environment.
After a few weeks I finally arranged an interview with a representative of the organization responsible for the mass deployment of GNOME and Ubuntu on over 5000 PC's in primary and secondary schools. I got the chance to speak with one of the representatives of EDC that were working on this project since it's beginning. Darko Arsov is working as a Technology Integration Manager at EDC and was the man for getting all the informations for this text.
