The kids are all right with Linux
School starts early in Georgia. The kids are all back at it.
It was on a pre-semester visit to my son’s high school that I got a shock on Friday.
The PCs were gone. In their place were banks of terminals, with small flat-panel screens, all hard-wired to the desks. A teacher’s son was messing with one, causing a reboot.
And that’s when I got the shock. Linux.
Apparently my son’s school spent the summer ripping out the old PC system and replacing it with a centralized Linux server and terminals.
Now here’s the real shocking part.
No one noticed.
