Discussion of a school board's use of Linux in the classroom, especially on the Asus EEE notebook computers. The article focuses on Kamloops Thompson School District, in British Columbia, Canada. Support is a key issue. "We get better support with open source software: online wiki's, forums, mailing lists etc are much faster and better to get support than phoning up Microsoft and listening to someone read off answers from flash cards."
