Video Clip of Tamil Nadu’s 40,000 PC Migration to FOSS

Finding cost savings of 25% to 90%, ELCOT, the government corporation to support and develop IT infrastructure in Tamil Nadu (India), migrated its desktops to SUSE Linux, Thunderbird,, and an entire open source workflow stack.

40,000 PCs were migrated!

YouTube hosts a video created by ELCOT discussing this upgrade. The dramatic beginning and occasional narration are funny, but the interviews with ELCOT employees are really interesting and a great source of information direct from those in the middle of the project.
