The city of #Bern wants to keep Google and Microsoft out of their schools! 🎆
Schools are experimenting with Collabora (Nexcloud), Kolab, Mahara, Mattermost and Moodle. ❤️
Some, of course, complain for the minor incompatibilities, e.g., with MS Word, but they should blame themselves for not having used Open-Standards in the first place!

Complain to whom? Microsoft, I presume. 🙂
@FuckOffGoogleZurich perhaps I disagree with harsh words used in this post, but I really love this statement "but they should blame themselves for not having used Open-Standards in the first place!". You have a point.
Article about keeping Google and Microsoft out of the schools in Bern removed?
The article "Probleme mit neuer IT an Berns Schulen" of Inside-IT is indeed not reachable right now, and has possibly been deleted.
Fortunately, the title still appears on a Startpage search (attached image).
Did Google or Microsoft make some pressure (speculation only)? It would be interesting to find out.
Fortunately, the article has been archived in November by web.archive.org ! 🎆

Shame they're not doing the same thing about Apple...
