Schools In Portugal Moving To OSS

arunce The truth... (319 comments)

This government don't want to spend money in education, is cutting everything, from class hours to teachers, 30 thousand will be fired over the next two years.

They just found that primary sector is the way... and it might be, with all the resources, from ore to fishing.

But the ugly truth is that they don't want to buy new computers, and by doing so, they are just saying this as a show off.

Microsoft Portugal at the end of the day won't notice a glitch with their money flow, in fact, most of computers have double license. (OEM from manufacturers and Volume Licensing from MS.)

Also, lot of schools already use Linux.
