Linux - not the easiest in school
I have spent the last year getting rid of a Linux system. Our main issue was that every time we opened a browser we had to authenticate, every time we accessed e-mail(squirrel mail) we had to authenticate. It was not untypical for most ofice staff and teachers to login at least twenty times a day. Squirrel has got be be the worst e-mail system I have ever used. I soon got rid and setup exchange server 2003 to tie in with the brand new Server 2003 AD that I put in as well. We now have single sign on to our whole system and even to SIMS. The only Linux I have now is a moodle server which runs two virtual servers on some version of Linux. This is supported by Webanywhere and I am totally dependent on them for support. It took the Linux Guru about 3 weeks on and off to get single sign on working with moodle but it does work well. The problem is that my moodle server is just a glorified PC with a standard Gigabyte Mobo and a single PSU and I notice how slow it is compared with my HP kit. I regret not paying more for an HP server now.
