Submission + - Schools in Portugal Moving to OSS (publico.pt)

thyristor pt writes: In light of massive national budget cuts, the Portuguese government will force public schools to move to free/open source software . Schools with some 50.000 outdated computers won't see their software licenses renewed, the main reason being the cost of hardware upgrade inherent to mostly Microsoft software updates.
Will the Euro debt crisis be a driving force to the spreading of open source software?
