Back in September, LWN ran an article about the FUSS project, which converted the entire computing infrastructure for the Italian-speaking schools of Bolzano, Italy to Linux. When that article was written, the FUSS staff had completed a major push to install its own Debian-based distribution on over 2600 systems, but the true test - the beginning of the school year - was still in the future. Now that the new system has supported a few months of teaching, it seems like a good time to go back and see how things went. Is Linux truly up to the task of running a school system?
