| Chief Information Officer Ben Startzer said the 
| district would purchase even more of the low-cost 
| netbooks over the next year, eventually bumping 
| that number up to around 1,000.
| [...]
| Netbooks at APS run on Linux Ubuntu, which is a 
| free, open-source operating system distributed on 
| the Internet. That helps keep costs down, Duran 
| said, and the district mainly uses web applications 
| that are freely distributed and require no 
| licensing fees.

| taking a wise decision and avoiding the Broken OS entirely. Yes, Intel is not
| going to use Vista on its corporate machines... ever.
| [...]
| So that leaves two other choices, Linux and Mac. Linux is a distinct
| possibility, they already have an in-house distro that causes employees look
| nervously around the room when you talk about it. Although it is not a
| desktop variant, there is no reason that they could not roll one given two
| years.
