Indiana education officials are planning to order 300,000 Linspire Linux-based computers.
"Indiana school officials have evaluated their options and chose to go with a Linux-based system because it's at a lower cost to them," said Heather MacKenzie, public relations manager for Linspire.

Linspire has been working with Wintergreen Systems for the past three years to provide several classrooms in the pilot districts with desktop Linux computers. The partnership is part of Linspire's Education Program that is designed to bring Linspire to all academic institutions at any level, according to the company website.
