CNews: Russian OS to be installed in every school: "Experts and market participants believe the terms stated by the Ministry of Communication are quite real. “Software distributives, developed on the basis of Linux and tested within 2007-2008 might actually be installed in schools by 2009 end”, "So, throughout every school in Russia, they are trashing Microsoft Windows. Bang. Gone. Nuked.
In comes open source software with a Linux kernel.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh is thinking about opening a new science and technology school and there wasn't a peep about open source software in the presentation. Nothing about software engineering.
The proposed Science and Technology Public High School should be devoted to the deployment of free and open source software and nothing else.
This policy will get people excited and engaged.
This policy will educate students for the future.
This policy is what Pittsburgh needs.
