The city of 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.

@FuckOffGoogleZurich please use zulip. mattermost is a nice slack clone but the slack threading model is inferior. :blobcatpresentgreen:

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.
