I'm a recent teacher in Computer-sciences (and math) in a school
(Bastogne). They're using only Win for now, but I might have a server
soon and I think i'm going to install a [Ed]Ubuntu pc in the teacher's

I can second you if you want (but i'm completely ok with you as
principal contact : for now, i'd need 6 ou 8 hours more every day :-) )
