Short article summarizing a slightly longer article that outlines three major lessons education can learn from open source: the use of OS technology, the value of 'amateur' work, and the nature of 'bottom-up' knowledge and development. Best quote: "At this point, anyone proposing to run Windows on servers should be prepared to explain what they know about servers that Google, Yahoo, and Amazon don't."
