Private schools still get extremely cheap Microsoft licencing.  I do 
on-site work for a catholic college and they don't pay much for the MS 
software they run at all.

But even though they get very cheap MS software, they have several Linux 
machines acting as servers and they are wanting to trial a Linux desktop 
machine in their library shortly to see what the response is.
