Re: [school-discuss] List of Free Software programs for education by OSS watch UK
Did I miss something, or is there no mention of LTSP in this list, or
of Linux as an alternative operating system? LTSP is enabling several
hundred schools to implement low-cost networks based on Linux,
integrated with most of the packages listed in complete distributions
such as Edubuntu or Skolelinux.
