An excellent reason to promote open source in schools.
From DebianEdu wiki:
"Why consider it?
It is Free software: not only in price but also in the way schools are allowed to use it.

This project provides user-friendly licenses that gives rights not responsibilities. "

I think communites (such as this one) play a more important role than we realize. There is just so much software out there and ways of doing the same thing. Having a community to bounce things off of, suggest solutions and help other people discover software that you haven't come across yet is sometimes invaluable.
3800 words for #cosmicvoyage today, and 10,200 for the weekend overall. My buffer for Voortrekker is four updates deep again, and I’m feeling better again about where the plot is going - I’m starting to see a way for it to come out as it needs to.
