Original link found on /.


"Mike Huffman, special assistant for technology at the Indiana
Department of Education, said schools in the state have added Linux
workstations for 22,000 students over the past year under the Affordable
Classroom Computers for Every Secondary Student (ACCESS) program. And
that could expand quickly with several new updated Linux distributions,
such as Novell SUSE, Red Hat and Ubuntu.

"This year, Huffman expects Linux desktop deployments to grow from 24
high schools to 80 high schools, driven by lower costs, higher
functionality and early successes. "

The article indicates that various districts are using Novell (SuSE),
RedHat and Ubuntu. Their goals were to make their desktop systems
easier to manage and reduce costs.
