And that's the mistake! Tell me what's wrong with a SC-1000 and
a couple of working Sparc SLC??? The kids can learn programming
on those computers too! They are easier to maintain for the
admin than PC's (simply: the SLC's are diskless clients of the
SC-1000 and the SC-1000 is in another room). They would cost
virtually nothing (Companies and Universities are throwing out
them today). The kids would see something else than dreadful
I'll tell you: The teachers have no idea of Sun! They're
actually behind the kids in Windows! What a boring world!!!
We can't change this. The world is going on! Let's collect
and write down our knowledge for later generations.
The current generation is not interested.
