Proposal: present Ubuntu to local Boards of Education with the idea that we encourage each local school board to drive Ubuntu into the school systems.
The Opportunity: Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP this summer, forcing Windows users over to Vista. This will mean that school systems will not only have to purchase upgraded licenses and software, but they will also need to purchase new computers, peripherals, and software. This comes at a great expense. Instead, by utilizing Ubuntu, school systems can save this expenditure and apply the monies saved to more critical expenditures.
The Solution: the Connecticut LoCo (Local Community) Team should develop and present a 10 minute OpenOffice.org Presentation to the School Boards in our areas.
