Marco Fioretti wraps up a seven-part services on the use of Linux in Italian schools (parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). Good, solid observations and discussion. "Those who eventually do participate in Linux training sooner or later ask some variant of "what is the real usefulness of Linux, since [for example] it doesn't support as much hardware as Windows?" Loseto's answer is that Linux won't be the solution to their employment problems. But, 'if they can affirm during an interview that they know how to use an operating system that can reduce the risks and increase the competitivity of a business, they'll have more opportunities'." Via school-discuss (Frederick Noronha).
