Moreover, within the priority national "Education" offered a choice of several versions of the distribution of so-called "school of Linux, developed by the domestic company alt Linux and promoted by a group of companies" Armada "(). In addition to free these distributions, the advantages to this solution include ease and simplicity of installation, as well as an extensive set of preset training programs and background materials. This is certainly good, but here distributions are installed on computers in school computer labs - and what's next? Naturally, the further exploitation of the installed operating system starts.

Now tell me, dear reader: have you seen a lot of Linux-literate managers, simply put, nerds?

Christopher Chandler spoke with conviction.
