LinuxMarshall -> Linux May Power South Korean Schools! (8/23/2004 7:38:27 PM)

South Korea's education ministry could soon switch to the Linux operating system--a further testament to the growing popularity of open-source software among regional governments.

The project, which would rank as one of the largest Linux installations in the country, aims to link all primary and secondary schools and relevant government departments through a common system known as the National Education Information System.

On Friday, business consulting and IT services provider BearingPoint submitted a final proposal to South Korea's Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development for the project.

In its report, the company recommended that Linux be used for 2,000 out of 2,700 servers in the National Education Information System. Each of these Linux-based servers would cater to a particular high school or so-called special-purpose school. The remaining 700 servers would be based on Unix. Each Unix server will be shared by a group of 15 elementary and middle schools, BearingPoint said.

The actual client systems will be running (obviously?) on windows?

If this speculation is indeed true, since this is will be the os students will learn computing on, the story as presented to the public by linux proponents seems misleading to me...
