You right and wrong... the NZ govmt is forcing everone to MS by _giving_ 
them MS stuff and picking up the Tab..now
checking hows its implemneted and holding schools to account for this...
So there is no level playing field where each alternative to computer 
education has no cost...
which is wrong...  Now everyone is asking for Exchange, MSSQL to support 
this desktop crap?
everyone is being insideous trapped here in NZ with the Govmt blessing.

Krsnendu looked and found the best solution but I can see he is being 
rounded up by user, teacher
govmnt expectations...
