Hi all,

Mark Shuttle worth came on IRC to answer Ubuntu user's question Ubuntu
Open Week. Here is what he had to share on Free Software in Education...

---------------------------------
sabdfl(18:29:57) amachu: QUESTION: Education sector the real arena where
Ubuntu can prove decisive.. Mark, how do compare with Microsoft's
educational suites with Edubuntu?  

sabdfl:         I think the best thing that free software does in
education is
DIVERSITY  

sabdfl:         we don't (yet) have the best word processor  

sabdfl:         though we have at least three *pretty good* ones  

sabdfl:         what we do have is a huge spectrum of tools  sabdflfor
all
sorts of disciplines  

sabdfl:         music, art, maths, physics, statistics, programming,
design  

sabdfl:         you name it  sabdfland those tools are free of charge  

sabdfl:         and OPEN  

sabdfl:         you can see how the tools work  sabdfland you can shape
them  

sabdfl:         that's a treasure chest for education  

sabdfl:         especially in places where the kids are often smarter
than the
teachers  

sabdfl:         so, we should focus on that
