Definitely the best news I've read for some time.

I hope other Balkan states follow suit and shift their education systems out of Windows towards Open Source. If the next generation gets a head-start on Linux, the future of Free Software will be bright.

Incidentally, anyone who is thinking of using Windows Vista should first read the following:

Bravo Bravo Brave, I want Albania to do the same thing too, but our (im albanian) prime minister went to meet Gates, so probably will not do this.:(
He jouu,if there is anybody that dont have UBUNTU yet, he should go to www.ubuntu.com and request a free CD, and the disk will be in his home for free. And you dont have to delete your stupid windows. You can install them, both.
UbUNTU IS A GREAT SYSTEM. Just go to youtube and check those videos. Ubuntu is maybe, 2x faster than vista.
have a nice day.

It's you and your people who stand at attention to your Turkish masters and are playing fetch.

You're also getting it good every night because you know those Turks. They love their dogs.

Note how "Macedonia" and "Thrace" are written using the same font on the maps because they are both geographic regions.

Probably in your school you didn't have Ubuntu ...:)

"Macedonia" and "Thrace" are with lighter letters because they represent regions in Turk empire ,while bold letters represent country. If Bulgaria wasn't a country in that time it will also be with light letters,,,

No - we are still living in the Stone Age. But I hope our "ancient macedonian" neighbours, who are the wisdom masters will enlighten us again, as they did it so many times in the past.

The Vista operating system has a lot of problems if you upgrade from Windows XP. You have to practically change the whole computer. That's why I still use Windows XP. "If it isn't broken, don't fix it"
