Linux in more universities

Posted by rom on December 10, 2004

I am proud to say that UP is one of the universities that is aggressive in its Linux deployment, use of Open Source development tools and in promotion Open Source in Education and Government.

I am more proud that UP is not alone in doing this. University of South Florida even has an actual class devoted solely for Open Source! Coolness! I am introducing an Open Source-related course this coming semester, too. I will definitely look at the University of South Florida model and perhaps even adopt it.

When will other Philippine universities see the light? C’mon, don’t pay license fees when you can use it to buy more equipment and training for your faculty!
