> I agree that we should ignore SIF and work on open source > applications. As Les said: This just gives me a bad taste. Microsoft is pushing their software with SIF aware applications etc. Now schools if you want to believe it or not happen to listen to microsoft even when they should not. This means schools even those looking at open source will look for this technology in the open source community and wont find it. This means they will say ohh well we can go with MS they provide what we *NEED* (That need is a what we think we need provided by the MS Educational Marketing group. Mind you they have a much bigger advertising budget then open source groups) I think its time to stop thinking as a individual developer and look at what can help the schools in the long run. Quit being a developer of one application and allow us to be developers of the future education. School Infrastructure is important if you want to believe it or not. SIF while originally backed by SIIA (which scares me too) is a good step in the right direction. I will take my comments from this forum now because apparently I see things in a different light then others do.
