"I'm speculating that the minimum deployment is back up to
10,000 XOs, which was a previous category of deployment.
"This is a blow to future small deployments in South Africa, as
we have over 600 XOs deployed in South Africa through this program
with more that were planned. Marco Rosa has been setting up a local
non-profit organisation to raise funds and coordinate deployments -
now to no effect unless we use laptops from other vendors."
