Re: [K12OSN] LTSP Teacher forums

Yes, the OS/X version of OO works great.
Graduating student bought herself one of those "cute little mac laptops".
But she didn't want to spend the $200 or so for MS-Office...so she asked me if I had anything that could help her...
15 minutes later she was all jazzed to be using the same programs they use in the library =)

We have one teacher that questions why we aren't using "main stream"

4th grade class to use in their studies on US states. She was tickled to
death and didn't give me that "I wish we were using the software I have
at home." look.

At a presentation I gave last week, a couple people told me that they installed OpenOffice and changed the Icons to the Word and Excel icons and several people haven't noticed! Of course another benefit of OSS is that people *can* use the same software at home (at least once there's a native version of OpenOffice.org for OS X).
