Tom, it may warm your heart to learn that the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) has cut costs and improved service delivery in rural areas with a low-cost Multi-station Linux Desktop model -

Our South African distributor started with a 13-city pilot. It has now been extended to 50 sites and the strategy has been officially approved by SASSA.

Now all we need is to teach more of it in school so that the job market won't be all Microsoft dominated.
