Linux Rooms, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

There are 34 machines running Debian (woody). Students, using these machines, are granted a 50 Mb harddisk space, and can use ordinary office software (OpenOffice, Lyx and so on); on the machines there are installed programs for numeric calculus (such as Matlab), too. This lab is completely dedicated to Linux; in the campus many other laboratories are equipped with Linux, but on multi-boot computers.

Debian has been selected for stability and for being a system which allows simple upgrading.
