    The "teacher" spelled conference incorrectly.

    I will not judge this person. This is letter of fear. I have seen this many times. I have spent my entire education being forced to use windows. But today I use linux freely.

    It would have been wise to do the research first before the email.

    Totally agree with Helios, and at the same time feel really sorry for the teacher (only because I'm not personally involved).

    Re: A Must Read

    I don't care about the teacher, feeling sorry about the kids.

    Pisses me off.

    Agreed. It really bugs me when people act this way out of ignorance.

    Strewth! (I'd use a stronger word, but don't want to upset anyone.) Had this happened/should this happen to me, I'd be livid! Unbelievable. I'm lost for words really. Luckily,so far I've been lucky in that my secondary school was Linux neutral but had a faw Linux machines, and my sixth form college is neutral to frowning. Anyone tries to stop me though, I'll educate them!!
