GNU/Linux in Italian schools

by Matt Lee Contributions Published on Sep 23, 2005 03:46 PM
Trentino-Alto Adige, a region in Italy, is switching to GNU/Linux in its Italian-language schools. (The article calls the system "Linux", but the school system does not make that mistake.)

The decision to use free software in the schools is indeed, beyond the economic and technical reasons, an ethical and political choice. It is the choice of remaking oneself, both in the use and teaching of computing, with the values of freedom and sharing, and not just in the use of software which is efficient, stable, and secure, which runs on older machines, and which is not subject to licensing costs.
