| The Schools Open Source Project is an initiative to help schools with
| awareness, adoption, deployment, use and ongoing development of Open Source
| Software (OSS). A number of schools are already realising the benefits of OSS

Linux triumphs in UK schools as hell freezes over

,----[ Quote ]
| This post comes hard on the heels of an important piece of news... at least
| two Open Source companies have become part of the Becta's official list of
| suppliers to the education sector. The new procurement frame work under the
| aegis of the OGC relaunches the supply of ICT to education. The emphasis is
| clear: deliver value for money to UK schools.
| It was not long ago that most commentators believed an Open Source company
| would join the likes of Capita, Serco and RM shortly after hell froze over.
| But times do change. In this case the driving force for change seems to be
| (we presume) the well-known cost-benefit values of Linux and other Open
| Source software.


Becta green lights open source software in schools, at last
