  To be fair, I don't believe that all OSS news is all good. I want
to see a level playing field and freedom of choice for students and
education developers. Your views are greatly appreciated, and I hope
you continue to share them without reservation.

 I for one want to see more entropy in educational software/platforms/media.
 I dont think Linux is the end all utopia though. I like OSX, Fbsd, Obsd, even 
 windoxs on occasion. Its all good. I still see MS as holding a large chunk 
 of the business market and a lot of .edu market, for reasons that have
 nothing to do with quality or educational value.
