State Linux

The reader is watching developments in this area may remember him from China National OS RedFlag, based on Linux – but it is a single example, the transition from the Chinese is not over, and goes on RedFlag the whole country, and not a single education system. For concerns about the school budgets will let you know that There are numerous discounts on bulk purchases as Windows, and the academic license. And what prevents the State to order the light version of the OS? Not all functions 'WINDOWS' needs in the educational process, we can remove them and reduce price. And instead of MS Office to use the free counterparts – text-formatting functions are the same everywhere, but the student will be familiar with the common platform for document and information exchange. Nobody and nothing prevents a specialized school with embedded OS distribution in the installer training programs and materials. When the state thinks about the need to give up information and a general dependence national platform, and then have to deal with the universal teaching of the relevant educational material, and are more logical to examine the reality and the future in the form of Linux – perhaps in the form of an optional course for those who wish. Of course, everyone knows the phrase Linux is designed for the network, like a bird for flight" – the most romantic part of the whole computer, but at school we are preparing people who should be able to apply their skills to an already existing situation, and the use of software applications for them a higher priority than the operation of networks – and network engineers, system administrators will prepare in high school. .
