My district is exploring Open Source solutions as a cost saving measure. We are using Microsoft Office at this time. I have looked at Open Office but don't know where else to go. I need a solution that is supported on some level. We are using Drupal to redesign our district website and would like to explore more solutions for our productivity software. I have looked at Google Docs and Zoho also but I am told they don't want a web-based solution at this time.
We are also looking at Linux as a possible OS solution. The version we are looking at so far is Ubuntu. We have to have a solution that works with Windows products, we use Lexia and Read 180 reading software and have a variety of other products that we have to use that are Windows compatible.
What other solutions or ideas can you give us, is anyone out there using Linux in their district now? What are some good versions for a district such as ours?
