Microsoft's new licensing scheme for Windows NT will be so expensive that UK schools won't be able to afford it. This is truly good news for the free Un*xes since people tend not to switch paradigms once they have learnt on that works for them. Given that Linux et al. are a much better learning tool (roll your own matey) and given that the UK has a long history of supporting educational software on alternative platforms (BBC B, Archimedes...), this could be good for everybody.
