Indiana’s project of moving students from Windows desktops to Linux is paying off.

In about a year, 22,000 students have made the switch, using a variety of Linux distributions. The crn.com writer (link above) tried switching his own two children to Linux laptops.

From the article: “‘So Dad,’ [the 10-year-old son] asked. ‘What is the difference between Linux and Windows?’ I tried to explain but it was a waste of breath. ‘What difference do you see?’ I asked back. ‘Nothing, really.'”
