Full Install Linux Client\Server?
Okay I'm pretty much happy with my Microsoft setup. Active Directory is great (2008). Client PC's run Windows 7. I have one network with SIMS in the classroom for registration. Live@edu microsoft implemented as my email client. Remote access via windows remote desktop services. Uniservity learning platform. Approx 150+ computers in each primary school I support.
So why the change? I have been with the Microsoft way for a number of years, okay almost 20 years and well fancy a change. I have been keeping a eye on Ubuntu Linux for a number of years and am slowly being drawn into the 'promises' it makes.
So assuming Linux can change the world and give us all our apps for nothing has anyone been successful in their deployment of a Linux based system? What about SIMS? OpenLdap? Email? Remote access? Terminal services? Is anyone using Scholarpak (replacement for SIMS)?
Any comments/issues/success/failure much appreciated!!
