"Students at NC State's College of Engineering to Standardize on Open Source Software."

"Red Hat, a leading provider of open source solutions for developing, deploying and managing Internet infrastructure, today announced an initiative with North Carolina State University, to standardize their College of Engineering academic computing environment (Eos) on open source technologies. The initial deployment will feature Red Hat Linux on Dell Optiplex hardware and will expose thousands of College of Engineering students to open source software."

"This initiative is a continuation of Red Hat's University Program, announced in June, to bring the benefits of open source software to educational facilities worldwide, and is a combination of Red Hat's open source leadership, comprehensive resources and active university community outreach, and NC State's reputation as a leading and progressive engineering university. The partnership with NC State's engineering department enables the swift transport of Eos to an open source Internet infrastructure and expand teaching and development resources, while giving engineering students ready access to state-of-the-art computing and development platforms."
