Abe Loveless and I are giving a presentation on K12LTSP at the Illinois

similar presentation at this conference last year.

I am looking for "success stories" to include in the presentation.  Can any of
you send me a brief descrition of how you are using K12LTSP and how it has
worked out for you?  I need some brief descriptions and good quotes to use in
the presentation.

Thank you.

Hi Jim,

Well let's see will you "post" or publish the list of info received ?

Riverdale High School, Pierrefonds, Quebec.

approx 1000 students & 60 teachers
2 PC labs & 1 Mac lab
PC lab use - 1 used 90% made up of P-III required board technician 2 full days/mth to maintain plus in-house computer "literate" science teacher
- 1 used by 2 teachers made up of Celerons & P-II mostly gathering dust as the PC's were constantly crahing
- 1 MAC lab used by one teacher for visual arts maintained internally

post k12ltsp
same as above except
1 - k12ltsp lab 20 stations used 100% of available time by 29 teachers in the first quater of use.
added small cluster of P-III's to aid in video and 3D graphics applications

Positive comments - the K12ltsp lab rocks!!! the teachers & students love it
Cons - the board administration does not have any linux expertise and the tech union has tried to sabbotage the installs.

Final still to be determined but the linux lab keeps working & the others keep crashing ...
