ComputerWorld Philippines: Freeware OS attractive to schools

“A number of local schools are discovering that Linux can save
them from inevitably increasing their tuition fees everytime they
have to upgrade their computer systems.”

“Educators who discussed the advantages of Linux in schools
during last month’s Linux ’99 Open Source Conference in Makati,
agreed that this free open-source operating system that can run on
low-end machines can free them from the financial bounds of
commercial software distribution and upgrades.”
