GNU/Linux, the GPL or FOSS in general has been in my life for many years. GNU/Linux is an example how we can build a beautiful system based on freedom.
Today, many students and schools don't even know about Free and open source software (FOSS) or the great advantages it brings. At the same time, software knowledgeability is required for more and more tasks, FOSS has a distinct advantage in this field. Ask yourself, as teacher: Isn't our educational system not mostly about teaching kids and students what to think, not how to think? The time has come, it's time to change.
