The case for Linux in universities

This is more of a white-paper-ish article than a news story. "I work at a company which designs and manufactures networking test equipment based on Linux. Every term, I hire a Los Angeles college student or grad for a programming internship, and am often dismayed to find they lack adequate exposure to Linux. This causes me to spend precious weeks bringing them up to speed. Recently, out of frustration, I wrote the CS department of one large Los Angeles university, asking why their graduates generally knew so little about Linux."
