One of the most rewarding parts of being on the Multipoint Server / Remote Desktop team is seeing the products we build bring access to technology to those most in need. This often involves partnering with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) that work in the most challenging environments in the world. In the linked post below Anthony Salcito, our Vice President of Worldwide Education, talks about a new $75M Microsoft commitment to work with a group of 6 NGOs bridging the digital divide. He also discusses the role of Windows MultiPoint Server in that effort, using the example of a school 35km off the nearest paved road running a solar powered WMS lab:

“… It’s incredibly inspiring that the exact same classroom environment deployed in schools within a 5-mile radius of the Microsoft campus is affordable and practical enough for the least-resourced schools on the planet like Kisapuk.”
