I'm a History teacher and we had, some months ago, a discussion about the notebooks the State (SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil) would help the teachers buy. I was very angry because the configuration includes Windows Vista, and so the cost is higher and I told them it was some kind of stupid, they were forcing us to buy a OS with the machine, no options left.
A teacher beside me went veeeery mad and told me "What do you think we shoul do? Should we use illegal copies??? Technology has a cost!! If YOU like Linux YOU can use Linux. I like Windowns so I will use Windows!!". Fuck. I couldn't even explain again why I was complaining about the whole thing.
So, people. Teachers.
