Ligatus has recently organised a workshop on the value of free/libre software in education within the context of UAL. The official event booking page is here:
The workshop was attended by 12 open source enthusiasts. Following an interesting discussion on the issues surrounding propriatory software in education and the possibilities offered by open source software, the contributors had a chance to try GNU/Linux on their own laptops. An agreement to extend the group's activities was taken and we hope that a second workshop will soon follow.
