I wasn't impressed with the accuracy of the wiki last I checked, but
maybe it's been updated. The most recent numbers I know about are in:
(slides 16 and 17)
The first slide shows numbers of laptops which have 'phoned home',
which should consider a lower limit on the number of machines in the
field -- a number of our deployments have no connectivity, and those
that have connectivity are often firewalled.
The second shows Peru status: 40,000 today in 600 schools, and 150,000
in transit, which will go into an additional 900 schools.
