Kevan Barney of the Novell Open PR blog gives a couple of examples of Novell bringing great Linux solutions to American schools. The first example shows how Novell provided open source solutions to the Whitfield School of St. Louis, Missouri. The second example is an excerpt from Government Technology, a e-zine covering solutions for state and local goverment in the information age. A telling excerpt from the article "We've rejected one-time deals, or free-the-first-year deals, because that doesn't help with sustainability," Huffman said. "We don't want to get three years into this project and realize that's as far as the fiscal plan will take us."
