I agree. Since the economic downtown has driven many businesses to re-assess where they're spending their money, many of them are turning to Sun's (now Oracle's) Openoffice.org as a more cost effective alternative to MS Office.<quoted text>
Speaking of cheap you can get basic DVD players for less than $50 so WHY in the name of sanity are the schools messing with such antiquated technology as VHS.
I could at least understand why some schools were still using Apple IIs back in the late 1990s as computers were (and still are) expensive but we are talking about less than what a site license for something like MS office costs.
Why aren't the schools doing that, and buying proper equipment?
