Re: [K12OSN] Dying mice and enthusiasm

Our school district did the same thing with Macs.  They said "No more Macs at all.  You *will* move to Windows PCs."  They have a very similar attitude toward Free Software--ours is a Windows-only shop.

I think it would be very much worth investigating further.  I do know that there was quite a stir in Texas not too long ago with open-source legislation, and Microsoft was all over the legislature wheelin' and dealin'.  Did the Associate Superintendent give a reason, and if so, would you be willing to share it?

Hi gang

In one of the schools where we are running K12LTSP 3.1.2 (1.1 with 
updated rpms) for 30 diskless workstations, the mice keep dying on 
us, generally while running Open Office. The remedy - restart the 
computer - is more than mildly annoying. Has anybody else experience 
this? How was it solved?

Thanks for any help/support you are able to provide - This request is 
made two days after the Associate Superintendent for Technology in 
our district put out a memo stopping ALL further deployment of ANY 
Linux OR Open Source solutions... I am waking around in a daze... is 
Microsoft making some new offers that our taxpayers should know 
about, or is it perhaps a Texas political agenda item?

May God have mercy on us!
