Some schools in my district do.  The single "pro" that I can think of is
the ability to run Reader Rabbit and KidPix, but that's political, not

The con's:  God, that could take up a book!  There's the cost of
maintaining those Windows machines, the cost of anti-virus
subscriptions, the cost of Deep Freeze, the threat of BSA-style audit
threats from Microsoft, the cost of upgrading your PC hardware every 2-3

Just use K12LTSP, David.  You'll be much better off.  And I say that as
both a former MCSE and former Microsoft employee.

Do you GNU!?
