FUSS was also adopted by some of Bolzano’s preschools whose computer equipment, often dated, mounted insecure versions of proprietary operating systems. Several requests came to the FUSS Team in which directors emphasized the need for up-to-date, usable systems for teachers.

FUSS is used as a reference distribution by the SchoolSwap project in the Province of Bolzano; this digital sustainability and solidarity project aims to recover PCs from firms or public agencies to give them for free to students and families who need a computer to study or work.

During the period of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to recover used desktop PCs and laptops to provide to workers in the public and private sectors for smart working, allowed the further dissemination of FUSS as a lightweight operating system suitable for the reuse of computers otherwise no longer usable with proprietary operating systems.
