linux insider: Training teachers and students to use a piece of software makes that software more valuable. Vendors know this. Business sense, not altruism, is what drives deep discounts on software for education. I once spoke to a vendor of an online grade book who, upon learning that I train teachers, was very interested in my using it in my classes.
Manuel Klimek: A month ago I bought a TREKSTOR NDAS device. This devices promises on it's package to be linux compatible.
