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.
