Det här projektet vill hjälpa till med att få in openSUSE i skolor och utbildningsprojekt.

openSUSE för skolor

Mall:Education Content

As more and more schools evaluate Linux as a cost-efficient alternative for their running systems in a way that will be "ready for the future of education" and as more and more "homeusers" find out, that their children need a PC (and good PC knowledge) to have a stake in the future. Linux, Linux desktops and openSUSE become more and more useful. It's our job to make it more Educational.

We try to support schools using openSUSE, create and describe additional software-packages for educational projects and create an "add-on" CD for the regular openSUSE distribution. As this is a community driven project, we need you and your help to bring openSUSE into the schools.



As part of the openSUSE project, we fully support the guiding principles and goals of the project as a whole. In addition we wish to:

  • Support schools using openSUSE
  • Create the best distribution for educational use ;-)
  • Create a positive community atmosphere throughout openSUSE
  • Contribute to improving openSUSE as whole
