With only a few computer labs in its middle schools, many students in the Danville School District in Illinois were entering high school without the computer skills they needed.

So the district selected the certified Multiplied SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop hardware bundle from R Cubed Technologies, an Illinois-based white-box PC maker. R Cubed partnered with Omni Technology Solutions to deliver an eight-user bundle for Danville’s middle school classrooms. With the Linux Desktop Multiplier, up to 10 students can work at the same time using a single PC with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop.

“We estimated that upgrading our desktops to Microsoft Windows Vista would require replacing more than 95 percent of our PCs, as well as an additional $160,000 in licensing costs,” said Christel Powell, manager of Information Systems for Danville School District 118. “We had been looking at Linux for years and the Multiplied SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop bundle really addressed all our needs.”
