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.

Submission + - Colbert Report to go Dark ->

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."
