Best undergraduate programs in the U.S. for Linux/FOSS enthusiast?


Does anyone know of a list of the best U.S. computer science (or similar major) undergraduate programs that foster/promote/focus/use linux and/or other open source OS's as a development platform?

I'm looking to start a career in computer science and can't seem to find any good information on this specific subject.

I've had this same difficulty. As for "best" computer science programs, a lot of people have told me that as an undergraduate, you'd get a similar education from about anywhere. In my searches, I've found some colleges that have a LUG on campus, and I know google gave money to both Oregon State, and Portland State in order to foster open source. Other than that, I don't honestly know....

not only did google give money to Oregon State, but they are also a huge supporter of Open source, http://osuosl.org/
