Best Educational Linux Distributions

Filed under
Linux

The technology that is currently being used in schools is not the best course of action when it comes to introducing kids to computers. Not only are closed-source software and operating systems expensive, they also alienate the students from the ideals of sharing and freedom.

So, what’s the best way to circumvent this problem? Easier said than done, the best course of action against this Apple- and Microsoft- induced phantasmagoria is to switch to the free and open world of Linux. One could very well start with Ubuntu or even go to some specially designed educational Linux distributions. These distros, which are meant for students and teachers, can be used in any schools without costing the institutions a fortune. Also, the kids will get early exposure to Linux as well as to the world of open-source software. So, without further ado, here are some of the best educational Linux distributions.
