GNU/LINUX... IN EDUCATION: Vinayak <vinayak_hegde <at> softhome.net> an APGDST
student at the NCST in Juhu from the Mumbai LUG
<linuxers <at> mm.ilug-bom.org.in> lists reasons why GNU/Linux makes sense in
education:

	o GNU/Linux is the best operating system when it comes to education. 
  	  students can tinker with the internal of the system and get to
  	  learn a lot in the process.  

	o Easy to fix. Commercial support price is not exorbitant. You are
	  not tied down to a particular vendor....

	o Most Reputed Institutes and R&D organisations (IIT, IISc some
	  RECs, TIFR, C-DAC, NASA etc) use GNU/Linux.

	o Open Standards compliant.

	o Almost Virus-free.
