    India buys 7.5 million Live@Edu/Office 365 accounts

    India orders 7.5 million Microsoft cloud services ? The Register

    TBH, it's one quick and easy way of suddenly rolling out Exchange and all of the other basic office features that installing locally would have cost a fortune to do.

    What an awesome PO that would have been to write!

    Would be interesting to see how easily a roll out goes to 7.5 million people!

    EDIT@ Is this why @EduTech has gone to India for a while? lol

    I just spoke to Tushar Makkar who is mentioned in the article! hopefully I can get a chance to visit some of the schools whilst I am over here in May! would be nice to see them using it over here.
