Open Source Univerities

Open source and education are a perfect mix…and I’m surprised that adoption of open source lags in this environment. It seems, however, as if that’s changing: Universities Speed Up Open-Source Plans “In the hopes of gaining more control over their infrastructure, more university IT administrators are accelerating plans to migrate to open-source technology in the data center.” (Worth noting that the main motivation is not cost (the usual reason stated for going open source), but security and control).

    This is good to hear; there is much to be gained from this. I’d like to see more endeavours like OpenCourseWare supported by more Universities as well.
