I'd like to see an educationally oriented software/os roadshow tour the
schools in Australia, with an 'out-of-the-box' educational network,
which is easily adapted to the needs of the individual schools with all
their students, teaching staff, administrative staff etc.
The schools are a Microsoft 'stronghold' at the moment. That is sad, cos
it means that we are actually 'creating' MS-addicts by the tens of
Time to put a bit of focus on some very good alternatives.
Count me in.
