Linux in Schools

January 21st, 2003 · No Comments

Michael Surran writes about Linux from Kindergarten to High School, and his experience of moving one school to Linux: “Switching to open-source software running on the Linux operating system has been the right choice, allowing us to provide our students with modern equipment and software for a fraction of the cost of a computer lab running proprietary software. If Linux continues to grow in popularity and gain a foothold in the workplace, we will look back at our choice as one of the most important decisions we’ve ever made.”

Its a topic I will visit soon in the context of the 5KPC ecosystem in the education segment.
