I suspect most IT users in my school don't care that they're being driven down the proprietary route.We are still waiting on them to fix IE it has been a LONG wait.

But the point is if Windows breaks you have to get Microsoft to fix it at whatever they charge and however long they take, if GNU/Linux breaks you can ask Redhat, or SuSE, or IBM, or HP, or myself, or Gordon, or Neil, or put it out to tender and get the lowest price, or even fix it yourself.
