[school-discuss] Interview with Australian open source advocate

Earlier in the summer, Con Zymaris 
http://www.itnews.com.au/newsstory.aspx?CIaNID=19560 filed a complaint
against Microsoft with the Australian Competition and Consumer
Commission (ACCC) over anti-competitive tactics allegedly used by
Microsoft. So, we caught up with him to  discuss it and other issues
around Microsoft.


Con sees Linux winning so well in Australia that laggards in the
corporate space are considered anachronistic luddites by their peers.
In addition, none of the main-street computer retail outlets offer
full-price, business-legitimate Microsoft software anymore. They only
offer Student and Teacher Editions and Academic Editions, which are
sold at 75% discount.   Is this really a price war?
