NewsForge reports that 20,000 LiveCDs will be distributed to students and teachers in Italy. Less than three weeks ago there was an announcement that 64,000 LiveCDs would be distributed to students in France. If only I was given a Linux CD while in school, I’m sure my first computing years in front of BASH would have had a better impact on me then all the time I spent in DOS.
about 20 thousand live-cd will be delivered to students and teachers, with the collaboration of Alpikom . All the students and families will have, for free, the same software environment and all the applications used in the computer classes at school.
