writes: "According to this article on CNET a Microsoft-sponsored report has found that six school districts in Indiana are choosing to pay for Windows licenses instead of taking advantage of the low cost linux-based desktops that many other districts are adopting.
From the article:
"The school districts interviewed for this study choose Microsoft solutions because they believe that Microsoft provides reliability, adaptability and a long-term vision for its partners in education," said the IDC report, by analysts James Pettler and Thom Rubel. "Reliability, adaptability and a long-term vision come together to maximize organizational efficiency, the learning experience, and taxpayer investment in education."
Of course, this isn't as significant as it first appears — considering that it's only six out of well over 200 school districts in the state."
