I agree with what Owen said in his previous post, I know Linux would be
a superb server for schools, teachers can just leave it in a corner and
let it run.
I don't think LAID is big enough to present a case for the educational
market. I will invite teachers from a number of schools my father has
associations with to the event to see what the whole thing is about
though, and I have Linux plans for a nearby Gael scoil which is
expanding over the coming year so believe me, if we had the resources
I'd love to do something for them.
What I would suggest is approach your old schools and introduce the idea
of Linux, read the consultancy articles on linuxtoday.com. If you're
anything like me, you'll be remembered as the computer guy so at least
your old teachers will know you'er _interested_ in good systems. Might
even be some money in it (but I wouldn't hold my breath, not yet
If you don't feel you could do the above ask yourself if others should
make the resources available to store old computers etc..
