The beatification of Steve Jobs continues. It appears that students in Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second biggest city, might soon be attending class at a school named for the late Apple founder.

The technical secondary school is currently named for another guy who has a reputation for being “revolutionary”—Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The 50-year-old school obviously is looking to the future, seeing as the school is just now getting access to central heating, according to Novinite.

All in all, this seems like a no-brainer. For a 17-year-old student, the choice between tying your school’s name with the man whose Soviet Republic swallowed up your country after World War II or the guy who made totally sweet iPhones and iPads doesn’t seem too hard.

The decision to ditch Lenin is settled. What’s still up in the air is whether or not the school will be named for Jobs or a Bulgarian scientist.

Regardless, we are looking forward to a new age where today’s tech giants are immortalized around the world. Marches in Zuckerberg Square! The scenic views of Mount Sergey Brinmore! The rise of the People’s Republic of Jeff Bezos!
