Pretty sure this is in kerala, the state where I live. Here, the government is pro foss. In my college, we use ubuntu in our computer labs.

But i was in cbse school so couldn't get to use linux in school lab. I do have it in my own pc tho, linux mint livin' alongside win 11.

Our textbooks (in Ukraine) used to include stuff on both windows and linux (specifically, linux mint with cinnamon), and included a chapter on libreoffice/openoffice

oh and also tux paint! (in the 4th grade i think?? honestly don't remember)

this post tells Microsoft that there is another Market they can buy by giving the government free licenses for education. The schools then do the free advertising and you end up with adults who think that a computer equals windows.
