User reaction: windows --> *nix
So currently I'm running a completely windows system except for a single squid proxy.
My medium to long term goal would be to get things moving onto the open source side of things as I really like the concepts, think it would save the school a ton of cash and so on.
My question really are:
1) What are/were the reactions of users to the switch?
2) Did/do they have any issues adjusting to the new software and look?
3) Do you imagine they'll have trouble adjusting once they get out into the big bad windows world after school?
4) Worth it?
I'm concerned that it would be quite disruptive to users who have been using windows for say 5 years and are now confronted with *nix stuff as well as users who have been using the new stuff for 7 years (grade 0 - 7) and now have to learn to use windows when they leave our school.
