SWEEPING INITIATIVE PUTS 80,000 COMPUTERS RUNNING GNOME INTO STUDENTS' HANDS
*Eighty Thousand* computers gentlemen. Is there any way that we can attempt
such an outrageous thing here in the US?
let's see... if we order 80,000 cheap Walmart systems, or we bought in bulk
from any of our favorite Taiwan suppliers at about $180.00USD each:
or at an even $400 with a cheap LCD monitor ($174) plus shipping and
It begs the question: What's 32 million bucks to the US Government? How come
we can't get 32 million dollars from the State government? It's a drop in
the bucket when all is considered...
And NYLXS keeps $50 from each PC donated for operating expenses,
installation, storage, etc.
that's four million dollars... You can get your own building... 'nuff said.
