That's kinda scary. Malaysia, of course, is the target of
this particular story but what makes one think that their
educational system is the only one that needs revamping?
:-) It may depend on one's state here in the US but
California is hurting pretty bad because of Proposition 13
(the 1978 variant).
Especially since open source actually needs a little
*thought* at times. Unlike Windows, where it's point,
click, drool, and slobber while the malware infests
one's system. :-P (Software packages such as MacAfee
and Symantec at least allow one to wipe up the mess.)
Windows Vista. Because it's time to refresh your hardware. Trust us.
