"Computer consulting company Linuxgruven.com of Clayton recently stopped using the Linux training materials made by Wave Thomson Learning of Creve Coeur a division of Thomson Corp. Linuxgruven says Wave's price of $200,000 a year for the books and other "courseware" materials is too high."
"Meanwhile, a Wave subsidiary, Sair Linux of Oxford, Miss., has suspended Linuxgruven as one of its accredited centers for learning Linux. Sair Linux says Linuxgruven failed to hire instructors that have passed Sair's tests on using its teaching materials."
"While Linuxgruven and other Linux groups are developing training materials to be distributed freely over the Internet, Wave believes its materials are the best, and it has no plans to give them away, Kousky said. In fact, Kousky said he hopes to win Linuxgruven back as a customer."
