Finnish schools in Kauniainen got rid of their IT problems by changing to Ubuntu Linux and LTSP based solution. The solution made it possible to focus on learning and enhance the use of IT in teaching, but to reduce the need of resources at the same time.
The schools bought 120 thin Linux clients and did a service contract with Opinsys Oy, who will be responsible for administrating and developing the system when needed. The system has about 1200 users overall in three schools.
The adaptation to the new system turned out to be easy for both the personnel and the students.
The whole case study is available only in Finnish.
