Submission + - Schools told not to deploy Vista

ukhackster writes: Microsoft's hopes of making a big splash with Vista in the UK have suffered a blow. Becta, the agency which tells British schools which technology they should buy, has recommended avoiding the operating system for at least another year. According to Becta, there's no compelling reason for schools to move to Vista, or Office 2007 either. Becta was criticised late last year for hampering open source deployment in UK schools, but by cautioning against Vista it may now give Linux a boost.

Time is an illusion perpetrated by the manufacturers of space.
