"Red Escolar, the Mexican initiative to put Linux in all the schools in the country, has been busy. Here's a report from Arturo Espinosa Aldama from May 26:"

"This week, there have been more interesting happenings. We released a new version of the CD, 1.0-12, with all the services tested. We updated the software to GNOME 1.2, which comes with an almost complete Spanish translation (a contrast with HelixCode Preview 1), and Netscape 4.73, which also comes translated to Spanish. We included in the /images directory a floppy to make NFS installations, and we erased spare or duplicated packages, reducing the CD's size to 361 Mb. And, as usual, we deleted more details and did corrections that we had left unattended...."

"Andre Muller wrote a report on Linux in South African schools for LinuxUser, a South African website. This report lists a number of links we hadn't known about before, giving us a very interesting view of Linux in education in South Africa."
