Why Linux isn't taught in schools?

My question is that Why schools in India and other places teach Windows 🪟 as the OS and make addicted to Microsoft Software??
Why not Linux :penguin:if its considered in Development ??

According to me What Windows 🪟 I learnt in my school is of no use as of now .

Linux is very old and is only known to a few… Schools teach windows as preferred Os as it is simple to use and allows users to install packages in a few clicks plus it is widely used in many companies… Though people like privacy and security as more important than looks and ease of access, resulting in switch from Windows to Linux…


Something I noticed in Uganda was that all their computers were second hand commercial castoffs, all Windows (old versions). To install Linux, they’d have to download a large ISO from somewhere through a slow, expensive internet cafe connection. I left some Ubuntu install disks at a school in Sipi Falls… I wonder if they tried them. Linux is ideal for “old” computers.

I wonder if Microsoft donates either PCs or software and so they use it?
Maybe someday it will be different…but right now, for most consumers, Win is still the choice… Myself? I have used only Ubuntu for many years (~2010).

Linux is the default OS used for computer literacy etc in all schools in Kerala, India that follow the State’s syllabus.
