Ignorance in the Classroom

While puttering around Ubuntuforums found a link to this blog post which quotes a teacher’s email in regards to Linux.  Specifically that it was obviously illegal as “No software is free” and that Microsoft would supply “copies of an older verison of Windows.”  Needless to say I am not surprised at the ignorance, inability to reason, lack of fact-checking and pomposity of this teacher. I encourage everyone to click on the link above and read Ken’s blog then show support.  Why?  Ken refurbishes old computers, installs Linux on them and donates them to schoolchildren who otherwise would not have one.  Maybe that teacher knows nothing about research or critical thinking.  I hope, however, she can understand and appreciate irony.
