North Shore high school ditches Microsoft

Albany Senior High School running entirely on open source software has slashed its server requirements by a factor of almost 50, despite an education licence deal for schools to use Microsoft software.
The school in Auckland's North Shore City has been running an entirely open source infrastructure since it opened in 2009. The 230-pupil school was set up to follow open learning principles, offering large "learning commons" areas where multiple classes interact rather than conventional classrooms and setting aside one day each week for pupils to work on self-driven research projects.
