Don't know much about the PR, but please be advised that the two main
complaints on Linux I saw were: (a) We cannot use office. (b) We cannot run
Video players in double speed to listen to lectures.

To (a) the answer should be - you do not have to use office for any of the
courses taught in the lab. (b) ??? Does any one know how to fix it????


Also, Shahar, the lab engineer, has Linux on a USB, that he can give out to
students, who wants to use it portably. Please mention this.
