Our school (University of Detroit Jesuit High School & Academy) started last 
year with 942 students grades 7-12. We ran two computer labs (32 each), our 
library (36), our art room (6) and our learning center (4) for a total of 110 
working linux terminal clients. All of our computer courses were taught on 
the linux terminals.
