We have certainly made a lot of progress here in Hawaii, and I or anyone 
that we have served would be happy to speak with you.  I know our DOE is 
one of the first to offer Linux+ certification at the K12 level, and 
there is acceptance of Linux and FOSS all the way up to our State 
Superintendent.  A charitable non-profit, HOSEF, has been the catalyst 
in accelerating the adoption.
