I am not in US. I am not in education. But reading this list I would
like to contribute my 2 cents worth of experience:
We changed over our entire business to LTSP+OO+... format. Those who
switched from DOS to GUI were the ones who had more reason to be afraid
but the max resistance was from existing Win users. Today after 1 year
old win users are still whimpering but the champions are the ones who
switched from DOS Quattro spreadsheets and WordPerfect to OOCalc/Writer.
I tried convincing some schools and colleges to switch but till date no
one seems to be interested since "No one else has...." I try to give
them examples of K12LTSP but reading this thread shows that many school
districts there are equally obstinate(?)
Grin Grunt and carry on!
