This guy needs a round of applause

+John Kim is getting his school in LA to move to Ubuntu. By that, he means an all-in move across all systems, and he has managed to get his school administration discussing about it.

Yes it takes guts to even propose such a change, especially when even final years CS grads laughs at you for using a toy OS like ubuntu.
