What the…

Quick, somebody call Satan and ask him how the weather is down there.

My boss just walked into my office and showed me a report about Linux. He then went on to suggest that I start looking at using Linux on some of the computers in the district.

Of course I’m already running Linux on my desktop machine and on one of the servers at the high school. So I showed it to him and he actually seemed interested. The plan right now is to look at the K-12 Linux Terminal Server as a way to beef up our old Pentium 75’s by using them as thin clients.

The cost savings of reusing old computers, improved stability, lack of virus worries, etc. seem obvious to me. Now it’s just a matter of convincing a commitee of people from each campus. This should be a lot of fun.

  1. Heck, just slap ’em around until they cave. Worthless turds! Linux, hmmm…the software with the security blanket? If I don’t like it can I upgrade to Schroeder, Lucy, Peppermint Pattie, or maybe Snoopy? I don’t want to go back to Charlie Brown, though. That little red-headed girl never gave him any.
