Switching

It seems that more and more government institutions around the world are taking their turns at switching to free (as in free-beer) operating systems.

I wonder what will happen in my country. Here, in Romania, many of the schools don't even have computers and the ones that have, have Windows.
Wait. There's more. Much of the pre-college schools have a piece of software that the government bought for them. It seems that this software helps teachers teach and school administrators do their job.

I haven't had the chanse to see that software. I know it's written in Java. I hope that it runs on *nix systems. Otherwise, if, at any time, the government decides to switch to *nix, I really wouldn't know what would happen to the company that is doing the maintenance on the sofware.
