I am aware generally of proposed and existing Linux deployments in schools
in Portland (Oregon), Indiana, Kerala (India), Extremadura (Spain), Russia,
and Brazil, but I am wondering if anyone can summarize in just a paragraph
or so what is going on with those deployments.

Also, has anyone heard what is going on at the Riverdale High School in
Portland, Oregon?  Is Paul Nelson still there?

I would also love to hear a brief paragraph from people about their school
deployments.  Do you have LDAP or LTSP networks?  Do you have dedicated
computer labs?  Do you just have a few standalone Linux computers in

I am a volunteer who is supporting two public schools in San Francisco with
Linux.  At one school, we have a 31-seat LDAP Ubuntu lab.  That school also
has about 20 standalone machines in classrooms.  Those machines are used for
basic Internet browsing; for email; and for using TuxType, KTouch, and

At another school, there are about 31 standalone machines which perfom
similar functions to the machines located in the first school.  Our use of
Linux is rather primitive.  We are looking to enhance that usage to get more
educational benefit from these machines.
