Subject: Debian in Central America
Debian is spreading in Central America. In Nicaragua there are yet three Universities, which employ Debian in servers and routers, see http://www.uni.edu.ni/, http://www.unan-leon.edu.ni/, http://www.curn.edu.ni/. This week finishes a five day intensive workshop about Debian with the participation of 15 system administrators of the biggest university UNAN-Managua, with which it is expected that about four remote campus spread over the whole national area will lauch themselves to the Internet, also using Debian Gnu/Linux as there OS environment. The national engineering University UNI, http://www.uni.edu.ni/ maintains a Debian mirror for the i386 architecture at http://debian.uni.edu.ni/, and has recently joined also the LinEX project http://www.linex.org/ for which it will provide a mirror "real soon now". Also one of the commercial Internet Providers, http://www.netport.com.ni/ has recently switched its servers from Windows NT to Debian Gnu/Linux, while Magma Soft http://www.magma.com.ni/ [note of the author, that's just my personal server] uses Debian since ever.
