    I inherited all four and they were 'self built'. Two are already using the EMBC learning platform and another is soon to be training on it.

    One however - was only a peer-to-peer network when I took it on. Now they have a domain built from the ground up by yours truely.

    Another I've pretty much managed to rebuild underneath itself.

    The other two are still in a bit of a mess as they had several years of not being supported properly.

    So is that 25/machine for as much office/OS software that you can eat?

    Yes and IIRC you have to pay that every year. Stop paying and wave bye bye to your licences.

    Yes, but you can use the latest versions due to software assurance. And if you want to stop you can buy out of it by buying the licenses.

    Well my costs are currently nothing for the OS as its comes with the machines

    50 for a server licence and 3/comp/CAL thinghy - call it 200 for 50 machines - one off cost/school

    And 35/teacher computer for Office (or 35/each computer if head insists on handing dosh over to Mr Gates little company )

    Say 1750 max in worst case - more normally about 500 - also a one off cost.

    But I can see that 1250/year and you can have all the new goodies you'd want wouldn't be the maddest financial outgoing I've seen in primaries

    Esp if head insists on Office 2007 all round

    regards

    I've had windows 7 machines in one of my primaries since the last week of december term and they work perfectly. The only daft bit of the deployment was having to install the 2008 resource kit and then enable its features in windows features. Why they cant ship with gpmc installed is beyond me.

    I'm downloading the trial of 7 for the desktop machines to see how it runs. P4 3Ghz and a gig of RAM should be enough, but we will see.
