>Subject: Free OSX 10.2 for teachers
Well, this is very nice of Apple, but I wonder how Mac support people
are going to handle it when 12 teachers approach them with their shiny
new software and want it installed on their 233-mhz iMacs? And the
school is entirely OS9/MacManager which doesn't support OSX. This
almost sounds like a Microsoft ploy to force all-around upgrades (except
MS wouldn't give anything away).
Bryan, I really like OSX. When can you get me a copy for my PC? :-)

Thanks, Bryan. That's all we need to add to schools' security
nightmares: kid lighting fires.
And, by the way, it's my understanding that Yeats did NOT use a Mac for
writing poetry. In fact, I think the computer in general was what he
had in mind when he talked of a "rough beast slouching toward Bethlehem
to be born."
OK. I actually have something to do beside penning annoying responses
to this list. I'm signing off for the day.
