I would certainly hope so. Many people simply have no idea what Unix and also Open Source is. Computer labs at University come with WinXP, OS X, and a customized Fedora distro. I personally think its very useful and I definitely use the printing services quite a bit. But at the same time, University requires that I have my own computer (how they enforce this, I don't know), but are committed to keeping computer labs open across campus. I would hope other Universities would also take this stand.

The impasse over carriage fee hikes would mean "SpongeBob" and other shows like "The Daily Show" will be cut off to 13 million subscribers, said spokesman Alex Dudley, a vice president at Time Warner Cable, the nation's second-largest cable operator."
