    It's a well known fact that a computer cannot run without Windows installed. Everybody knows that.

    Re: A Must Read

    This is almost unbelieveable. If I had kids, I wouldn't want them taught by that teacher.
    Anyone else read Cory Doctorow's book Little Brother? There's a scene near the start where the protagonist is called in by his high school principal and accused of various crimes, most of which he hasn't done. This could almost be from that.
    Absolute corker of a book, BTW, highly recommended.

    Re: A Must Read

    That's... horrifying.

    Especially because teachers does have influence in a kid's life. I was presented to Linux by a teacher in the 8th grade. And since then I have been using it, jumping from it to Windows and back to it until a few years ago I switched definitely to Linux.

    I hope that kind of teacher is minority...

    Re: A Must Read

    All the arguments here against the teacher are seen from the Linux side of the street. I have never used anything but Linux myself so I am on that side to, BUT remember that this is a person who will be burned like a witch if she doesn't protect the kids. The teacher did not know what was on the confiscated discs. I always love one sided views and arguments by the teacher in her email and the majority of the posts in this thread.

    You know, you ARE right to some level.

    BUT she should've made some research before public punishing the boy like she did, in front of his friends. Now we don't know, but the boy may be traumatized and may not want to use Linux again. She was stupid to some level, in the urge to "protect her kids".
