I agree that there are many great opportunities with open source software, it does provide us opportunities to tap into the knowledge of other people in the world. However, I am not a big fan of Linux, perhaps that is because I am a windows baby. I was around to see the development of windows and used windows 3.1. I am dating my age, but I was a young one then. :)
I have worked with people in the past who would never use anything but open source and I understand more now than then why open source is important. I realize that using the world's knowledge to more powerful than a team of programmers programming in a basement of Microsoft. I don't want to say either OS is better they just have different ways of development. I guess I am open minded when it comes to this. I think the idea of open high school (link on the class site) is a great idea.
