Ah... since OAR is to run on Fedora Linux and is an example of how linux
can be used to do something as a suite of applications that just might
directly impact your life and your family, as the guy that might have
entered your home and beat you or yours senseless makes an educated
decision not to, all because of something that runs on Fedora, it might
be relevant. Or, maybe not... depending on your level of empathy for
others around you. 

We're doing our "proof-of-concept" presentation to NCDOC in the 24th of
this month. This just might become an inroad for RH/FC into the states
IT infrastructure as well. So, just how is that not relevant? The
pricetag to the state(s) is free. Our non-profit is providing this.
Using linux. The University of Wisconsin is providing a ton of tech
support. The damn thing still has huge holes in it. :) It seems the base
package runs better on Windows than Linux out of the box, so me and a
couple of people are having to fix that as well, before everything can
be tied together. 

Nor am I a coder versed in smalltalk / squeak which is the VR package
we're trying to use, similar to the server for "SecondLife". If I can
get past the "Proof-of-Concept", it's been proposed that we take it to a
Juvvie Detention Center. <shudders> ... that's a tough crowd! <shudders
again> I think it will work though. The methodology to be used and the
content is already proved to work minor miracles. Once it all comes
together, everyone will be encouraged to put in their two cents worth of
whatever skills they wish to contribute. I might be just showing up with
a bunch of videos showing how it works, (captured from machines running
Windows, which I refuse to do) if we can't get past the bugs, but I'm
showing up. That's 99% of success, the showing up. Now you know the rest
of the story. Ric
