I agree with you about the "silly learning games." We have two labs. One
is totally LTSP based and the other is a mix of Windows 95 and Apple //e

Both the 95 and //e machines are used for edutainment software. The
Windows boxes are always giving me software problems due to Shockwave
based edutainment websites and assorted CD based junk.

The ancient //e machines keep on working with maybe the occasional bad
power supply. Except for bad floppies, the software never crashes. Ever.
The software is better for actual educational purposes than the Windows
stuff as the programmers were able to concentrate more on the
educational content rather than graphics as the machines were so
