In Punjab government distributes 125,000 laptops based on ubuntu . It has plan to distribute 175,000 more similar laptops in year .
The original plan was to distribute laptops without any OS . I wrote to authorties to
Install ubuntu and informed them it is free (I am not sure if it was the reason but they opt ubuntu )
Now these laptops are given to very talented students .Once I was complaining being lonely as ubuntu user now imagine my university which has 24,000 students and literally everybody is carrying an ubuntu laptop
