+ - Tamil Nadu gets dual-boot Win-Linux desktops

Submitted by Nanda Krishnisoblikum
Nanda Krishnisoblikum (666) writes "The Indian state of Tamil Nadu has finalized a tender for 40,000 Lenovo desktops which can be installed with both Novell's Suse Linux and Microsoft's Windows XP Starter Edition depending on the needs of the organization. For instance, schools will be provided with Suse Linux desktops, while government employees who still require Windows in their work will get dual-boot machines, Umashankar, managing director of Electronics Corporation of Tamil Nadu (Elcot) told ZDNet Asia. According to Umashankar, users will be "encouraged" to use Suse Linux as far as possible."
