Re: [PLUG] ‘Schools’ Linux 4.4 Released

Charlie keynoted WordCamp Lancaster last year and spoke at WordCamp US as well. He's a great guy and the things Penn Manor are doing with student-driven tech support are pretty incredible.

Interesting and related:
...     'If you’re an open source believer, you must see the tremendously inspiring and informative TEDx talk by Charlie Reisinger, IT Director of the Penn Manor School District, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Viewing this video makes me want to jump out of my chair several times to cheer. One of the most powerful lines is: “Together these problems create a costly chain of vendor software lock-in and student learning lock-out. How do we break free?”'

That sounds like it'll be a good read when published.

Disclaimer: I didn't watch the video yet...

Thanks for that JP.  Good story behind the genesis of the distro too.
