[News] More Learning and Test Driving GNU/Linux

Learn Ubuntu with Hackett and Bankwell

,----[ Quote ]
| In my experience, when you yank someone’s Windows workstation away from them 
| and replace it with Linux, there are all sorts of little problems. These 
| little problems might be easily dismissed by a Linux enthusiast, but the 
| reality is that the user ought to be comfortable using the tool you’ve 
| provided them, and if they’re not comfortable they won’t like it. A harsh, 
| arbitrary transition does more to damage the experience of using Linux — and 
| by association Free Software — than does a gradual, planned, and supported 
| transition.

All Russian Schools to Use Free Software

,----[ Quote ]
| I've often lamented how few schools in the UK use free software, and how
| difficult it is to break the lock that Microsoft has on the entire
| educational system. The pathetic state here is highlighted by contrast with
| Russia, which is making amazing strides in rolling out open source to
| schools.
