Whilst certification seems a good strategy, what about parental power
being exerted upon schools? One would imagine that if parents
(espcialy of low income families) were aware of free software, they
would implore schools to follow suit.


How do you get to those parents? Through the schools? ..Wait, isn't it the
schools that are not ready to change?

See the problem?


If we want to get LibreOffice accepted at school level we need to make
sure that our product has a solid reputation for network install and
support. Incremental update capability would also have to be part of the
package.


Totally agree with this. OOo had some severe problems in the early days
simply because it was not easy to install across hundreds of machines on a
network. All schools tend to be organised on networks so installations will
be hundreds of a machines at a time which is good and a real incentive to
make it easy to maintain. Not sure of the situation now. Could it be
improved?


Cheers

Marc
