Training a new generation of Windows users

11.02.2007 0:34

Today I saw this advertisement for Microsoft in the newspaper:

It says that the high school I used to attend switched completely from a "heterogeneous system" that used Linux and OpenOffice to a "rich and stable environment" of Windows Vista.

That's sad. When I left that school five years ago things looked like they were slowly moving away from a Microsoft monoculture (at that time that meant Windows95 and friends). School's mail and web servers were already running on some flavor of Unix and publicly accessible computers in the library had Red Hat installed on them. In fact I had my first experience with Free software while attending that school.
