David Son writes "On the celebration of Youth Day (June 16) in South Africa, a volunteer group of Linux enthusiasts (SLUG - Schools Linux Users Group), teachers, learners and community members set about installing 240 refurbished thin clients, 10 servers and 250 network cables at 10 schools in the Western Cape, in three hours. In a carefully co-ordinated effort called Operation FreeTux, SLUG members displayed their support for the Open Source movement by implementing Linux and K12 educational software at the 10 schools simultaneously, and at the same time transferring skills and knowledge to the school community."
