Students Use Linux in Indiana Schools

As part of a program to supply every high school student with an individual computer for each class they visit, Indiana schools are testing Linux desktops. If the Indiana Access Program is successful, 300,000 Linux machines could potentially be deployed across the state - a big win for the open source movement.

"Indiana schools aren't just talking about desktop Linux – students and teachers are actually using it every day," said Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, which is supplying the Linux OS and software. The initial rollout of Linux began in Indiana three years ago, and a new deployment is scheduled to begin this month.
