New report to say that schools save $ with open source software

Apparently they can’t release the report right now due to restrictions on government announcements during an open election, but the preliminary findings released so far sound good. From the Register story: “The landmark report will show that OSS can be implemented successfully in schools and present documented examples of cost savings from its use. Becta’s report, based on a study of 15 schools, will state that open source office products have been demonstrated to offer schools a cost-effective alternative to proprietary software.”

You could have told me that, right? It will be interesting to read the full report when it comes out and see what they have to say.
