Uruguay Reaps The Benefit Of GNU/Linux In Schools

Wow! After years of using GNU/Linux in schools we can see the users being pumped out of the school-system at a constant rate. Eventually these will be decisive folk in organizations large and small and growth will increase more rapidly. Way to go!

    That is reasonable and the right thing to do but many jurisdictions look upon mandating anything as unfair competition between public and private sector. I consider FLOSS to be a cooperative product of all humanity so it should be exempt from thinking of the competitive aspect alone. Further M$ does not respect free markets and should be punished. It is a travesty what they were allowed to do for decades as if it were a proper business.

    This is EXACTLY how it should be in education.
    It is ridiculous that still many schools have mandatory Windows laptops and then in sociology and other lessons educate about internet and privacy security while being (illegally) exposed to the M$ marketing and NSA.
    Schools and governments should be forbidden to use any M$ tools, or better, they should mandatory use FOSS!
    Shame on those schools and governments who still subsidize criminal organisations!
