Has anyone gone completly linux
Long story short. SLT at the school I work are fed up having to pay the stupid Microsoft licencing costs and want to look at the possibility of moving completly over to linux.
Has anyone here done that.
If so what distro did you use for the servers and clients.
I'd like to set up a little test network to see where any problems may occur and to teach myself how everything works.
If anyone could help I'd greatly apprieate it.
Interesting ideal .... however
This is all well and good that the SLT want to go all Linux because they don't want to pay the licensing fees which btw are exhorbitant. However I have to ask the question, who are they doing this for the school or the students. Seems to me like they are penny pinching in order to preserve their precious budget. Some Linux would be good in a school as would a decent quantity of Apple products but as the predominent OS out there is windows then you will be doing the students a disservice by introducing this solution.
I am all form cross platform usage but try and look at the bigger picture of what the "students" will actually be using when they hit the big wide world and apply a comparitive ratio of technology to the school.
PS are there any good sites that give guidance on Linux as I have rarely used it but use it for our web filtering.
