SuSE Linux free for U.S. high schools

Author: JT Smith 01_Story_01.html. reports: "SuSE plans to give shrink-wrapped boxes of SuSE Linux 7.1 to U.S. private and public high schools -- free. The supply is limited. So if you are a U.S. high school teacher or administrator submit your request now. If not, give your local high school a phone call and clue them in to the free software and the benefits of Linux."

"All in all, Linux is a darn good alternative to most flavors of Microsoft Windows. You can do just about everything with today´s Linux that you can do with Microsoft Windows -- perhaps even more. SuSE Linux 7.1 includes a very Windows-like desktop, the K Desktop Environment (KDE)."
