| "By using Omni's Multiplied Linux Desktop Strategy in our classrooms,
| we have saved over 50% on our Linux desktop hardware costs, 62% on
| electricity costs, and saved our district thousands of dollars on
| costly Internet drops, switches, network wiring and other
| infrastructure and support costs. The Multiplied Linux Desktop
| Strategy will allow us to stretch our limited IT budget and use
| those savings to provide better computer access for all students
| in the district."

| Hyland said the district hopes to get all of its computers
| running Linux exclusively by 2010. By that time, administrators
| should have identified new Linux programs for Bexley students,
| including kindergartners. Hyland said she wants to get
| kindergartners started with a program that teaches typing so
| that Bexley students are familiar with technology early on.
