    XP/2003 Server on the main school network, 2k on the Computing/Business Studies network. We also still have a couple of 98/ME ( ) standalone systems lurking about.

    Re: What operating systems do schools use.

    I didn't vote as I could only pick 1 ...

    3 Windows Servers
    3 Linux Servers
    4 Solaris Servers
    1 OSX Server

    2 Classes of Sunrays (mainly used as citrix clients)
    1 Class of acorn thin clients soon to be replaced by 1 class of macs
    The rest PCs (2000 and XP but we are going to get some to dual boot into fedora core for the computing students)

    I think!

    Mostly XP, 2k and 2k3 servers, an old NT4 server and a couple of W98 clients still hiding in the corner.

    Re: What operating systems do schools use.

    The secondary school has a mix of 2k and XP workstations with 2k, 2k3 and Linux servers.

    The primary schools either have a mishmash of various windows PCs ranging from XP to 3.1(!). A few are lucky enough to have 2k/2k3 servers. I'm trying to get things moved along but suffer from a lack of money. There's a few Linux boxes scattered about doing various useful functions behind the scenes.

    If this post was in America I think Mac OS10 would be winning. Would people benefit from Linux versions of software, drivers etc.
