Re: [school-discuss] Linux in Manchester (UK) schools

It's pretty cool news!
There is still too many schools using 
the expensive mail echange Microsoft solution, at least in my county 
where something like 4000 licenses for k12 students/teachers where pourchased recently.
When you know that free software can do so well in this departement,
it is really a waste of money.
