"Originally launched in September, "Free the Penguins" provides
customers with a low-cost, high-performance alternative to
stand-alone Windows desktops and thin clients for computer labs,
classrooms and libraries.
"Omni, Userful and Novell have agreed to extend this initiative
until the end of 2008 in response to extremely strong uptake from
schools in the U.S., Canada, Australia, South America, Europe and
Africa. Tough economic conditions have led more universities,
colleges and K-12 school districts to consider the hardware,
maintenance, space and electricity savings of Multi-station SUSE
Linux Enterprise Desktops."
