A pair of articles on education and Linux are on the net, Getting Linux into Schools, on TheLinuxGurus.org and another longer one on Freshmeat.net that discusses the current strengths and weaknesses of Linux in education. While not specific to medicine, many of the same issues apply. The articles refer to the entrenched Microsoft phenomenon which is perpetuated by institution sponsored classes that focus on a single company’s product, not general concepts. Update: Slashdot.org has an Ask Slashdot about laptops in education that was posted 53 minutes after my pointer. Coincidence? Jealousy of LMN? Heh, heh.
