I am an adherent of the Eric Harrison / Jim McQuillan philosophy of using, and re-using, technology. As a user of LTSP and especially K12LTSP for the last three years, I can say that it is one of the best tools for computer-aided classroom instruction that I've seen in a long time. I'm an educator in a K-12 environment, and I'm wondering why *everyone* isn't using this to some degree, especially after that Microsoft audit threat (my district was threatened in this way as well).
It's a shame that, in so many school districts, there's such a negative attitude toward "anything but Microsoft". These districts could benefit hugely from this wonderful tool. I've seen kids in front of K12LTSP thin clients, and they're eating it up!
