I got a 20% education discount here in NZ.

Our version of Novell was getting past its 'use by' date, so we were 
looking at a large cost either way. Win4Lin has allowed us to keep the 
P75s, but get the benefit of Win98 and newer MS Office versions without the 
VERY LARGE hardware upgrade expense to use the latest MS products

I know Kirk Rheinlander managed to negotiate a better discount.

Ask Netraverse to consider education discounts.
