India's NCERT recommends GNU/Linux for schools across the country

Is it me or are governments starting to seriously considering pushing Linux into their institutions lately? I don't know if India is concerned with this, but some like Germany are definitely worried about NSA now, and if they are going to use software from Americans, it better be open source. Sure there will still be a lot of inertia, and things will move slow, but I think the growing trend itself is encouraging.
