Eva, thats a mine field you step on. :o)

All this needs a working GNU/Linux infrastructure.
And at least one person who knows how to use this systems and aplications. And 
its a hard job to be the first one doing so... ;o)

Such kind of articles may be ok for a school bulletin motivating other pupils. 
But not for a professional newspaper.

So in my eyes this is step two before step one, bringing GNU/Linux Systems 
into schools. And for this it's interesting to launch bigger projects.

We will establish another skolelinux test and training center in 
Wilhelmshaven/Friesland. It will be the second one in Germany and the first 
one in lower saxony (Niedersachsen). After a first anouncement in a local 
newspaper on tuesday my phone drives me crazy. :o)
