Yippee! Library's Using Linux!

So, I went to the Library, cause I'm cool like that. And it's like "Internet", so I'm like, sweet. I sat down, I clicked on the little "Applications and Internet" button, and it logged me into a profile. I notice the Windows theme is different, thinking, hmm, that's odd, I library using custom themes. Then I see click the "Start Here" (Menu) button. It brings up the program list.

OpenOffice.org writer, no way, that's sweet I think.

More and more open-source programs begin popping out at me. Then I realize, omgosh, the library's using Linux. How sick is that. They gave up Windows and MS Office, which they already had, to replace with Linux.

Nice!

Anybody have similar "Public Places Going Open-Source Stories"?

Public Library running Linux

In the town where I work the public library has been running Linux for 2 or 3 years. Last time I was there they were allowing Firefox and OpenOffice only. I think they were using some type of shadow file for the users' desktop - email your files to yourself or lose them when you log out.

Mine is too...

...and it is really annoying. The computer's are incredibly slow!!!! they all run off one server (the reason I know this is because I help them manage it). And another annoying thing is that even though the computers have usb ports my drive WON'T WORK ON THEM!!!
