Debian GNU/Linux Grooves In Schools In Grenoble

“Following last year’s successful pilot, the French city of Grenoble is this year moving 8 more schools to a complete free and open source stack. France’s 16th largest city, is using Linux for PCs, laptops and servers. The city intends to have switched all schools at the end of 2018.”What can I say? Grenoble tested GNU/Linux in schools recently and as a result is expanding utilization of GNU/Linux and plans to be completely GNU/Linux in a couple of years. I discovered the compatibility of GNU/Linux with education 17 years ago and others are still discovering that today. It’s all good: freedom from lock-in, lower cost of IT, easier management and deployment. Amen.
