ZDNet UK: Space-aged millennial school chooses Linux

“Linux at school… Open Source is getting them young.”

Perhaps heralding a new era in education, the first school
in Britain to open this millennium has put all its faith in the
open source phenomenon, Linux.

“Parrs Wood High School in Manchester ,which opens today, plans
to base its new computer network entirely on the alternative OS.
The unusual step has been taken as part of the Government’s new
City Learning Centres initiative aimed at providing access to
technology for everyone in Britain’s cities.”
