    we were the same at my high school but we have recently become home to a lonely mandrake 7 stand-alone ( which lives in the middle-floor it room.

    Two of my friends taught a class on Linux last year at my school; that's actually what got me interested.

    I was reading an article about a teacher that switched the computers in his classroom to Linux, he said the kids loved it and it was a great learning experience for everyone.

    I think people are blinded by simplicity from using Windows for so long, adn therefore don't really know anything about how the OS works

    yeah, i think thats a great way of putting it ben. When I try to explain linux to someone who doesn't know anythign about it, many of them don't even understand the basic mechanics of an os, they think if you open up a computer, there will be a little sticky with c:\ on there drive. (and this is in the 37th best school in the nation! well...at least as decided by newsweek or time or somone)

    You know, I didn't really think I went to a hick school till I started reading this post...

    We didn't even have a computer class at my highschool. It was only like eight years ago, not like it was 1950 or something.

    What type of **** is that?

    8 years is like 50 computer years, that puts you about 1954 (unless my math is worse than id like to admit) actualy, its amusing, i love computers, but really am not a math man, i like the problem solving part of programming, dont get to do that in math.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. Yea, it's really said that almost all public schools rely on windows. I don't know how they can afford it. Anyways, I look forward to becoming a Linux guru, and and getting to know all of your better.
