A report that may arrive just in time to use as ammunition for either
Edexpo or the national education procurement agreement debate:


"Primary schools could cut their computer costs by nearly half if they
stopped buying, operating and supporting products from the world’s
largest software company, government research has found."

"Secondaries could also slash their information technology overheads by
a quarter if they moved away from Microsoft and other commercial
programs, according to an analysis carried out by the British
Educational Communications and Technology Association, the Government’s
ICT agency."

Cheers   :-)
