It seems like the IS manager, the person interviewed, had no problem 
with Linux and was quite happy with it but had troubles with teachers 
requesting Windows.

Things are like this in my experience: when users have a problem with 
Windows they blame Microsoft and then give up, as "everybody uses it" 
and "this is the way things work".
But when the users have a problem with Linux they blame the person who 
deployed Linux, "it was easier with Windows", "this Linux thing is not 
like Windows and it sucks", "give me back my trusted Windows".

What have they gained? They silenced some revolted users.
