    Don't forget to mention that it will save the school thousands in licence fees and is practically malware free and much more secure than windows.

    I have done some presentations on linux and other FOSS here at work , what I like to do is to present all the power and capabilities of the software, stability, success stories, etc. And at the end just one line : "Oh, did I mention (all/most) of it can be get for free?" . It is a good punch line.

    Thanks a bunch so i am thinking it will go something like this

    title page: Linux and Open Source in our school

    Summary: saving and possibly making money by switching to Open Source
    (selling all the hard drives and going diskless)

    Examples

    and idk after that

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Actually, for many school systems, the savings will be $million$ over a 5-10 year period. Why?

    1. Able to continue using current hardware.
    2. No OS upgrade costs.
    3. Applications can easily be recompiled to work with new/different OS versions.

    Schools are very hard-pressed for funds these days, even with MS offering "free" educational versions of their software. Remember, new MS software usually requires new hardware...

    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Not only that, but not all of their current applications are guaranteed to run on newer versions of Windows. So they may need to shell out some cash for that, as well.
