University challenged to ditch Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| The OU provides students with technical support, but only if they use
| Microsoft software. It advises students that if they don't use a Windows PC
| they "may have problems accessing the software and data files supplied with
| course materials". It has produced a 31-page guide to using Microsoft
| software and extensive demonstrations. It has produced upgrade advice for
| Microsoft's Vista operating system and even gone as far as promoting a
| Microsoft discount offer to its students.
| The OU does distribute copies of the Open Source Star Office to all students,
| but that endorsement pales in comparison to its backing of Microsoft. It has
| given no such advice, support or endorsement of Ubuntu, the free operating
| system lauded as the Open Source movement's viable alternative to Windows.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
