Thoughts on "middle schooling" in New England for the 21st century...

I am a big fan of Ubuntu-- a distribution of Linux that is designed for "normal" computer users. I have deployed this on machines that are a decade old and have thus provided students with adequate levels of technology. Let's define adequate technology as the ability to connect to the Internet and use Google Docs and access Wikipedia, YouTube, and similar resources.
Ubuntu is updated twice per year... version 12.4 just released (the two digits in the tens and ones places tell the year of the release and the digit in the tenths place the month)... version 12.10 will be released in October.
Especially if you are looking for a low-cost way to extend the life of some machines in your school, have your tech people look at Ubuntu.
