    Oh wow... Just wow... Teachers like this should be sent back to school for some proper education because they are obviously in no condition to be teaching anyone.

    I lost a braincell.

    I feel so sorry for those kids. Having a teacher that doesn't know what Linux is. And I read the reply that Starks sent her back, and this part seemed the best to me.

    Wow, some idiots out there. What the hell is that, though, about linux being inferior to Windows? Throw Wine on Ubuntu Linux and download the restricted drivers and plugins, and there you go. Security-wise, Linux is vastly superior to Windows. Vastly. Windows is easier to use, sure, but if you have the patience to learn, Linux is THE way to go. Who's with me?

    I'm half with you, but I personally would say hang both of them and get Mac. Just my opinion.

    In my humble opinion, I've divided the three OS giants. If you want to play games, go for Windows all the way. It just works most of the time. Want pictures, music, and videos really really fast? Mac is the one for you. Need a good OS to do work, tweak, and plain old mess around with? Linux is the way to go due to its customization capabilities.

    And your opinion is completely worthless, unnecessary, and completely off-topic. Let's not turn this into an OS war.

    OMFG L00K @ M3!!!!! MY OS IS BETTER THAN YOURZZZZ!!!!! I 4M TR3NDY!!!!!!!

    EDIT: And that goes for everyone who just stated their OS opinion whilst I was typing.

    Anyways, I hope that meeting gets documented. I want to see exactly what she has to say to him, and what he has to say back.

    The ignorance is over-whelming...

    Well I don't think flaming is in order. Midna25 gave their opinion, it's up to us to respect that opinion. My opinion is up for criticism, as is Midna25's and everyone else's who posts here. But please, let's not flame.

    That teacher went to college... More like printed out a degree off of some website.

    How can they not know that there actually exists free software?

    The fact that the teachers says she and many of her friends had tried linux in college and yet does not know that it is indeed free makes me think she actually paid for it in the past...which is just...wow...I mean...

    I think I'm realizing where the word "dumbfounded" comes from....cause she is really dumb, and everything about her is thus "founded" apon her stupidity. (not a literal interpretation)

    PS. "No software is free and spreading that misconception is harmful" made me laugh soooo hard. People are so afraid of anything remotely socialist. Its sad that our society can refuse to see the benefit in providing services freely for it's own peoples.

    But hey! lets bail out wall-street and a perpetual failure of a automobile industry to the tune of billions of OUR TAX DOLLARS and let them have NO accountability to the american public...uggh...I can't come on the temp without being political anymore...I'm annoyed too...believe me.
