Just a few words about you...

Hi guys (and girls?). Good to see that there's a linux community here in Cyprus.
I am a Linux user, altho I run Fedora, not Ubuntu and the reason I switched away from Windows were more on the philosophical side, rather than the technical. I am pro-libre culture and I support freer copyright licenses - mainly Creative Commons, I find DRM and extreme patenting absurd and I am concerned about digital freedom in general.
I was looking for a community that shares these views to some extend, and a friend send me a link for this forum.

Welcome to the community meidei! You will find the most of us share the same feelings here in respect to the Free culture and the implications of copyright, patents etc. Enjoy the ride!

Even though we have the label ubuntucy we are quite active (online at least :)) and support all the distributions.

Do you use linux in your professional environment as well or only at home?

Is this a public school? If yes then having edubuntu is good news (even though they do not use it)! Can you find out how Edubuntu got there? Did it came preinstalled from the Ministry of Education or it was just the initiative of a concerned teacher?

In regards to "nobody is using it" we can give presentations about linux and the free software culture if they are interested.

Yep, public high school school in Frenaros.
It's preinstalled by the MoEC in all the new computers (bought in 2011Q1). Dualboot Windows Seven and Edubuntu.
The GRUB screen has the logo of the MoEC and there are greek apps installed (which come from Greece's Ministry of Education repository, or so I guess).

A presentation would be an excellent idea, but I don't know if they are really interested. I don't really know the IT professors well, after all.

Welcome.
I am also a new member. The reason i went linux is that it is more stable, and the free software issues, but also bare in mind that a computer costs and your connection costs. It is possible to use a completely free operating system, but there are many non-free applications that you may need.
