“The Government of Kerala wanted to provide 141 members
of its legislative assembly with new laptop computers to help
increase productivity and collaboration. Working with Canonical
partner Zyxware Technologies and the active support of the Free
Software Community in Trivandrum, it equipped the new machines with
Ubuntu Desktop Edition and the OpenOffice.org suite of office
productivity tools.

“By choosing to deploy free and opensource Software (FOSS) over
proprietary systems, the Government of Kerala has saved tens of
thousands of dollars in licensing fees. End users are delighted
with their new Ubuntu laptops, which are feature-rich, highly
secure and easy to use.”
