Sigh...well, it was only a matter of time, I guess,
before an M$ troll would show up. Children should NOT
be learning 'M$' ANYTHING! for 'employment purposes'.
This is an education project, not an employment
project. As a teacher, I am much, much more in tune
with teaching concepts, such as word processing, etc.,
rather than a product of a corrupt megacorporation.
(and if you want lots and lots of evidence,
references, etc. for that, please feel free to email
me and/or visit my blog at cdneducation.blogspot.com).
And $3 per user is too much. $2 per user is too
much. $1 per user is too much. Sense a pattern here?
;-). Free, with source code would be ideal. Does M$
have that? No? Does M$ support the four freedoms?
No? Well, then M$ doesn't fit the spec. Too bad.
Bye-bye. (And sorry for the rant everyone. This is a
developers conference, and it is evident that the M$
poster doesn't understand what that means. As
mentioned, any poster who wants to discuss education,
philosophy, etc. email me personally, and stop
cluttering up a dev conference with such drivel. My
apologies to all here.)
