School saves a buck and bucks a trend by using Linux

Anonymous reader tells us about this Crossnodes story: Faced with thousands of dollars in unused Netware licenses, a school district makes the jump to Linux.

“It’s hardly news that over the past five to seven years many organizations have chosen to leave NetWare behind and migrate to an alternative operating system. … Others, however, are seeking an alternative path, one that not only gives them all the functionality of a modern NOS, but at a fraction of the price. One such organization is School District 23 in BC, Canada, which has elected to move away from NetWare and replace all of its NetWare servers with Linux.”
