Greg, that was very interesting reading.

I will soon be on the PTA technology committee for my sons' school. I hope to
introduce more of an OSS methodology. My older boy already knows linux and
the younger one is getting interested. Currently they are using iMacs in the
upper grades and any old piece of hardware in the lower grades. Much of the
software - Accelerated Reader, a writing program, and others - are web-based.

Thanks for the link and the thread!!

Hopefully the schools will soon see SUSE appearing. :)
