Re:We should print off copies of this for librarys

If only! The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation http://www.gatesfoundation.org/default.htm does give MONEY to PUBLIC libraries, but not "special deals" and not for other types of libraries (e.g. academic libraries). I work at an academic library where we support both Windows and Mac OS systems and have trouble making either work seamlessly with all of the different online services that we offer. I'd love to try Linux, but doubt that it would solve all of our problems either.
