Linux For School Project: More schools should adopt this idea

Marcos ManhÃ£es writes, "OLinux: In this interview, Phil Jones, LFSP leader, explains this iniciative that brings Linux to children right at their own school. 'There's a wrong perception that schools have to give children what they'll find in the workplace. Children can easily adapt from one platform to another. Also by the time they get out of school it'll all have changed anyway. If my school had that idea then they would have trained me at twelve to be expert on Word Perfect 4.1 for DOS. There's no need to worry about it. Trust in kids' adaptability'."
