World’s largest Linux desktop deployment?

Working with the Brazilian government and virtual terminal vendor ThinNetworks, the company has won a contract to deploy 356,800 virtualized “Userful Multiplier” desktops to Brazilian schools.

Userful Multiplier supports any Linux distribution, says the company, but in this case, the schools will use the government-sponsored Linux Educacional 2.0 distribution developed by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (MEC). Last year, MEC started deploying Linux Educacional 2.0 in school labs used by 52 million schoolchildren. The Debian-based distro (see image below) incorporates KDE 3.5, KDE-Edu, KDE-Games, and several MEC-developed tools.
