Don't forget that this is the QUANGO that appointed an outfit that has no experience with open source to set up and manage open source schools projects. (Becta schools deal stuns British open-istas ? The Register)
I agree in general with what Tamarside has said. They may well have good intentions - but the political meddling and the way in which things are done leaves a lot to be desired.
