    Well, they've been busy telling us about how Facility/ePortal is going to be all Silverlight and awesomesauce, so I guess they wouldn't bother if they weren't going to sell it to us.

    I've not heard anything along those lines.

    Would there be any reason why?

    I hope they are not going to abandon us, we spend a great deal of money with them, and will be disapointed if they do.

    Thank you for coming on so quick to reply to this question Paul.

    For those who don't know (or can't be bothered to view his profile), Paul is the Product Manager for Serco Learning so is a man in the know.

    After a conversation with Serco (admittedly not Paul), I am sure Independent Schools will be very happy Serco customers for the coming future, so you can all sleep easily now and not worry.
