Talking of the UK curriculum, how do you teach databases? I have been 
struggling with OOo bugs, such as broken form wizard, and now drop down 
lists. Overall the OOo Base experience is less than ideal, yet Kexi has 
just as many problems. What do you use?

And to add to your suggestion, the Vernier web site has some linux 
downloads that are difficult to get working, and that don't support USB. 
It would be great if  a datalogging application for the science lab 
could be included. One of the few places we still have to use windows.
