  • Windows 7 enabled netbooks for schools to include open source software

    The 267,000 Windows 7 based netbooks that the NSW Government has started rolling out to high schools will come pre-installed with open source software. The initial roll out that began today will see the 70,000 Year 9 students in NSW schools have a Windows 7 enabled Lenovo IdeaPad S10e by the end of this year.

  • Linux shortlisted for DET netbooks, beaten by XP

    Today's modern desktop operating systems of Windows Vista, Apple Mac OS X, and Linux still fail to address the basic requirements of the NSW Department of Education and Training's netbook project and instead the older Windows XP remains the platform of choice for more than 260,000 computers.
