TR reader Rand alerted me to this story over at Wired that details Linux use in schools. With the Labour Day long weekend approaching, this is especially topical as students prepare to head back to the classrooms, some of which will be running Linux.
Not only is Linux itself free, it also scales back much more effectively on low end hardware. Furthermore, there's a initiative to get volunteers to remotely administer schools' Linux systems, saving even more money. This cooperative attitude could bode well for Linux's uptake not only as servers in schools, but also in the classrooms with students from kindergarten to grade 12.
Perhaps it will take kindergarten students using Linux to finally kill off Tux's poor reputation for usability.
