FOSS for EDU and SMBs

Submitted by donna on 30 June, 2008 - 12:28

Am just refreshing my references and arguments for open source for education and small business. Stumbled across this paper entitled " Open Access, Open Archives And Open Source in Higher Education"  delivered at the State Library Of New South Wales, in Sydney in 2005 as part of the National Scholarly Communications Forum by Professor John M. Unsworth, of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois, USA.

Open Source in Education

What I've long suspected turns out to be true; you can spend less money on hardware as well when using open source software. Double the savings! Don't believe me? The IT manager at Westall Secondary College (where I occasionally help out) has said just that in an article called "Ubuntu breathes new life into school's abandoned hardware".

Because we get a plug, I suppose I should explain a bit about the work I've done at the school :-)
