"Today, SuSE Linux announced SuSE's Free Linux Program for US High Schools. Administrators, IT specialist or teachers of computer science at secondary educational institutions are invited to participate in the program immediately. The announcement is part of an ongoing campaign to make open source computing the IT standard for operating systems and applications worldwide. Initially, SuSE will sponsor more than 2,000 boxes of SuSE Linux throughout US public and private high schools."

"Open Source computing operating systems and applications are built upon contributions from thousands of individuals and companies around the world," said Dirk Hohndel, president of the company's US operations. "Having it in high schools around the US, demonstrates the open source philosophy and show students, teachers, administrators and IT specialist that they do not have to be tied to expensive operating systems and ongoing costly upgrades. The days of proprietary operating systems dominating the computing landscape are limited and this program allows the world to see the changes taking place today."
