Young people catch on naturally to new things. Their minds are more apt to learnig new things. It would be a shame to have to put $300 USD to buy the OS and $600 more to buy office.

I was amazed as to how quickly young people navigated around the GNOME desktop.

Let them learn on Linux. Save money and put into education instead of monopolistic entities.

Yea, my 8 year old has no problem working between OS's and using OOo. Heck, she has even done some things that I didn't even know about. Kids are great testers. :)

If you do use MS products, you could end up like a school system in Oregon that was audited by MS for software. It cost them a fortune.


And we all know that schools have more money than they know what to do with.
