[LINUX] If you live in the U.S.A. please sign this petition!

Postby sagirfahmid3 on Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:38 pm

So basically, this is a petition to the U.S. govt. that public schools should start moving away from Windows and Macs, and basically all proprietary software, in favor or GPL software or free and open-source software. This would save a lot of money that could be put to good use, i.e. renovations, new schools, more computers, etc...

It took me literally 2 minutes, so please, do show your support! There's almost half a month left to get 25000 "signatures"--so far there's been around 2000.
Here's the link (note that it's a .gov website, meaning it's legitimate):
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petiti ... t/T1xGw1fZ

Thanks for listening folks! Don't forget to spread this message! [You can just copy and paste this one].

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

While I don't live in the US, it's good to see someone doing this. Wasn't Pardus supported by the Turkish government?

Signed. A particularly good thought. I'd also like to see special Linux classes in school because the transition might be a little baffling to students who have only used Microsoft products.
