MS Pressuring NW Schools: Pay Up, Or Face Audit

timothy posted more than 12 years ago | from the must-eat-more-money dept.

Microsoft 870

razvedchik writes: "As reported in this article in the Portland, OR newspaper, The Oregonian, Microsoft is pressuring 24 school districts in the northwest to agree to their Microsoft School Agreement licensing scheme or undergo an audit in 60 days. Multnomah ESD, which covers the greater Portland area and has around 25,000 computers, has to either decide to accept the license at about $500,000 or undergo the audit which it does not have time to prepare for. Of significant interest is the fact that a significant majority of these schools are experimenting with using Linux. Multnomah ESD has its own thin-client Linux distro called K12LTSP."

What the hell is wrong with $lashdot!! (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388580)

Let us assume the fact that posts are showing up in reverse order is simply another bug resulting from shoddy half-ass open sores programming, and NOT INTENTIONAL. This is what happens when dirty GNU hippies smoke too much weed before coding.

Drain your swampy armpits, wash off your rancid body odor and fix the bug dammit!! But please - for Gods sake, TAKE A SHOWER!

I still don't under stand (3, Insightful)

ChanxOT5 (542547) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388589)

What legal right do they have to inspect the premises? Why do these schoolboards have to submit to these audits. It's not like I have the right to inspect the computers of everyone attached to the network that I run.

I'm assuming that they allready have some form or site or educational license. All of Microsoft's large licenses do contain contractual provisions that they are allowed to audit. However, I remember hearing that this has never been challenged in court. IANAL however.

gallen1234 (565989) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388795)

Maybe this should be part of the school boards's solution - throw lawyers at the problem while they either perform the audit quietly in the background or look for other solutions.

Read the license (2, Informative)

When you install a (note that, "a") copy of any MS product then you are explicitly giving them the right to audit you.

You are the network administrator and you don't take responsibility for your computers? That's not how I run my network. The computers are the property of the company and all the data on them belongs to the company. The users have access to the computer as a tool, not a personal toy. I think you need to check where you stand, and if there are company policies that need to be installed so be it. You should have full control over those computers.

Great point, but let me add one thing. It is not YOUR network. It is your companies network.

jmauro (32523) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388749)

This is a school. If you think you can control 5,000 first, second, and third graders not to install stuff you're crazy. They probably know more about the silly machines than you do. And on top of that rebellious high schoolers. It'll be almost impossible.

Re:I still don't under stand (1)

jtshaw (398319) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388750)

That is completely not true. That is like saying an ISP has the right to go through each customers computer.

As a network administrator you have the right to decided what you let them send others on the network and what you let them receive over the network but you have no right to inspect there personal machine.

Now in a business environment if you are responsible for upkeep on the individual systems as well as the network I can understand your point of view, but not all networks work that way.

I wonder if someone could challenge this 'right to audit' in court. A comment in the earlier story on the GPL [slashdot.org] mentioned possible contract problems with license terms that you cannot read until you open or install the software.

Especially troubling is that MS seems to picking on organizations without much money to defend themselvs in court, like the Texas Justice Dept, or school districts. I do not know much abot the history of this sort of intimidation, but I wonder how it would work if they gave the same ultimatum to IBM, or Fidelity Investments, or a tobacco company.

Ahhh ... obviously you didn't realize that the EULA is more important than a search warrent signed by a judge.

And if you dare refuse, then you MUST be a criminal because you have something to hide ...

well, the article says this, so I'm sure the school officials recognize microsoft's request.

Microsoft is well within its rights to call for an audit. Everyone says so. Everyone has read the contract. But school officials in both states are calling the audits "untimely," "outrageous" and "typical of Microsoft: not very bright."

nordicfrost (118437) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388725)

This is an interesting and very valid question. I can, however only engage myself in the law aspect from an norwegian law angle.


The basis is the license agreement. The outside of the CD case or envelope containing the key to the program clearly states that you have to agree to the contract terms set forth by the manufacturer of the product in order to use it.


This is a valid contract that you agree to as soon as the conditions are met. No matter how much I dislike the terms in the license agreement, I accept them by doing this. Individuals and cooperations have very wide opportunities to make contracts and agreements between themselves. This is how Microsoft can get away with the audits and other procedures that are elsewhere infringments.


Microsoft have, from a juridical viewpoint, extremely draconian contract terms. I have read the license agreement, and believe that they are not lawful here (In Norway). We have a very strong consumer protection law and the Microsoft agreement violates this on several different occasions.

Re:I still don't under stand (1)

superflippy (442879) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388785)

Yes, but you don't own the software on those machines. A typical software license allows the user to install a copy on one machine and make one backup copy. Multi-user licenses for specific numbers of machines (e.g. 500) are also common. If the school has purchased one copy of Windows 2000, for example, and installed it on 100 machines, they are in violation of the EULA. Basically, it sounds like they're trying to enforce the license.

Corporate audits are not uncommon. A company I know of installed single copies of software on multiple machines all the time when it was a small start-up. Once it became a large, well-funded company they entered into a multi-user license agreement with major software companies to avoid those audits.

If you agree to the EULA, they can do whatever... (2, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388801)

I don't understand why the $lashdot crowd is so up in arms about this. By using their software, you EXPLICITLY GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO AUDIT - read your Windows EULA. I'm sorry if you accepted it and installed without reading it over first - you were warned to read it. Agreeing to a contract without looking it over is stupid, and laziness/ignorance is no excuse for it. Don't whine about it after the fact, mmmkay? Thanks.

OS24Ever (245667) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388594)

This would be a perfect time for some large linux distribution company, or a consulting company to step in and donate time to help them migrate entirely to Linux. It would have to be a disruptive migration because of the audit in 60 days threat but they could do it.

You would think with such a large focus on MS right now they'd not pull this kind of crap especially in a tight economy and a region full of protestors. Should be interesting to see how this develops.

56ker (566853) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388706)

" MS right now they'd not pull this kind of ...tight economy"

It's probably down to the stock market reaction to Microsoft that they've all been told to pull their socks up and increase revenue. This in turn has resulted in things they'd never think twice about actually happening.

Re:This would be an excellent time. (1)

stagmeister (575321) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388766)

Well, it's not as much the *economy* that matters about the reaction to it -- it's that MS it taking advantage of schools.

Schools are one of those things in the US that everyone (the adults, at least) likes. You can't really attack the school system or else everyone gets mad at you, because for the most part the school system is public. So because MS is attacking the school system in an effort to raise their stock by creating more revenue, many people will get mad at MS who normally wouldn't, specifically those in the communities in which MS is attacking.

The reason for this is because if MS forces them to use windows or other MS products, then they have to pay $$ to MS and then the people have to pay more taxes, which nobody really likes.

Re:This would be an excellent time. (5, Interesting)

gclef (96311) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388748)

Better yet, I'd like to see one of the big Linux vendors set up a "strike force" to do panic roll-outs like this. (Heck, it sounds kinda fun...I'd apply for a job to do this.)

Think about it: you're faced with a huge audit, that you know you're going to fail. Do you a) pay the huge license & know you'll have to pay it again next year? or b) call in the Linux-install swat team to put Linux on every machine that you can't *prove* is legally a Windows machine, thus avoiding the whole issue for ever?

If the support & panic install costs are low enough (and the guys who do it leet enough), you may very well be able to get a *lot* of people (like the ones in the article) calling for this kind of short-notice Linux migration.

Predatory? Monopolistic? Customer-unfriendly? Microsoft? Say it ain't, Joe . . . and Steve and John and Scott and the rest of the computer tech supervisors at the 24 largest school districts in Oregon and Washington. At the busiest time of the year for those districts, Microsoft is demanding that they conduct an internal software audit to "certify licensing compliance." In a March letter, the software giant gave Portland Public Schools 60 days to inventory its 25,000 computers. "Which," said Scott Robinson, the district's chief technology officer, "is a virtual impossibility." Microsoft is well within its rights to call for an audit. Everyone says so. Everyone has read the contract. But school officials in both states are calling the audits "untimely," "outrageous" and "typical of Microsoft: not very bright." Many also consider the audit requirement a strong-arm tactic to push school districts into Microsoft's costly system-wide licensing agreements. "Given the fact that the letter came from their marketing department, and included a brochure about their school licensing agreement, this didn't seem terribly subtle to any of us," said Steve Carlson, associate superintendent for information and technology for Beaverton schools. "I have a more simplistic view," said John Rowlands, director of information services for the Seattle School District: "They just want to squeeze every nickel out of us they can." For sheer irony, it's hard to beat the fact that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is pouring millions of dollars into small, high-tech high schools even as Microsoft is looking for loose change at schools such as Jefferson and Marshall. The school districts are considered guilty of software piracy until they can prove they're in licensing compliance. If the district can't drum up the staff to manage the inventory, Microsoft is willing to show up with its own audit crew, but if a single computer is found with illegal or undocumented software, the district must pay for the audit. "This doesn't recognize any of the complexities of the educational environment," Robinson said. Many of the 25,000 computers in Portland schools were donated and arrive without pedigree or papers. "We're bubblegum and baling wire in terms of what we're putting on the desktops. For us to try to manage every donated desktop that comes in from a business or an individual is ridiculous." Ah, but wait. Microsoft has an offer it thinks you can't refuse, if only to avoid the audit: the vaunted Microsoft School Agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, a school or district simply counts its computers and pays Microsoft somewhere in the neighborhood of $42 per machine for one systemwide annual license. As Rowlands noted, IBM rolled out this idea years ago. Schools liked it because they could add hundreds of computers over the course of the school year and not pay for the additional software licenses until the next computer count. But Microsoft has put a new spin on the agreement, requiring an "institution-wide commitment." That means the district must include in its count not only the PCs, but all the iMacs and Power Macs that might conceivably use Windows software. What would it cost Portland Public Schools, which is already facing a $36 million shortfall, to sign that Microsoft School Agreement? "A rough number? $500,000," Robinson said, "which translates, roughly, into 10 teaching positions." No one at Microsoft -- and I dialed three different offices -- returned phone calls Friday to explain why the "random" audits targeted the nine largest school districts in Oregon and the 15 largest in Washington. Nor was anyone available to explain why Microsoft failed to notify the two groups chartered to represent the schools in licensing negotiations, the Oregon Educational Technology Consortium and the Washington School Information Processing Cooperative. "Everyone has a bad taste about the way this came down," Carlson said. "The audit is heavy handed; its non-participatory. Either they're starting out with the assumption that we're all crooks or they feel they can bludgeon school districts into their marketing agreement. It's clear they're not spending much time talking to the schools they're purporting to be supportive of." Thus, it's not surprising that several schools are asking, along with Robinson in Portland, "whether we want to continue with the Microsoft platform." One of the options is Linux, open-source software schools can run on their desktops free of charge and without a license. Linux is particularly useful on donated computers that aren't worth the $100 Microsoft charges for a software license. Paul Nelson, a teacher at Riverdale, and Eric Harrison with Multnomah ESD have developed a thin-client software called K12LTSP that runs Linux. In the last nine months, they've distributed the software to 5,000 schools. "Schools and government agencies that are paying for Microsoft Office are wasting money," Nelson said. "They should be using free software. A lot of this stuff has become generic. It doesn't take a fancy program to make something bold." R. Thor Prichard, the executive director at the Oregon Educational Technology Consortium, observed, "Microsoft has made it known they're concerned about Linux invading their territory. They're doing a lot of strategy building about eliminating Linux as a threat. Some of the districts they targeted are some of the districts doing initiatives in Linux." Subtle? Artful? Benevolent? Microsoft? That'll be the day

Capitolism at Work (3, Insightful)

Telastyn (206146) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388601)

Hey guys, seriously, if the schools want to use Windows, they should pay for it. They pay for books, they pay for pencils, they pay for desks. Granted if Microsoft wanted schools to use Windows, they should give it to the schools for free (which I hear they routinely do).

This is a pretty dumb move imo of course as it will do nothing but drive the schools to look to cheaper (free) OSes, but it's well within Microsoft's right to do dumb things.

I'd expect they are more scared that their students have installed truckloads of warez. This is a pretty dirty trick for MS to pull, as they know full well that most schools have some illegal software, often without them even knowing about it.

It's about fear and control, nothing else. It's funny, and a little scary to watch them scrambling like this: it can only help the competition.

least amount of time permissible under law. Like 3 days to comply, filing it
at 4:50pm on a Friday and they have to have it by Monday. Only in this case,
MS is hoping that they will just give up the money, if they really wanted to

seann (307009) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388788)

Yes, let them use Microsoft solution if they want to.
For Aplath's sakes, don't tell the schools right before exams, that they need to do an audit of ALL their computers to find software that does not belong to them. Atleast wait until the summer time when most of the schools re-image their labs, bastards.

If they did this to my school, I'd go beserk knowing some of it would be my responsibility.

So no doubt, here is my solution I have used, beware, it's dirty:

school closes, everyone goes home: 4:30pm, it's a friday, happens to be a holiday on monday.

you gather a group of 10 people for each 500 computers you own. Arm them with the latest customized CD-ROM and if needed USB CD-ROM drive (have 2-4 spare, etc)

Now you run the program proivded on the CD-ROM (which you, developed, easily) which shares all the local drives (C, D, E, F, /usr, /, etc).

Now after all that work, you have every computer available to the network.

You create your list of licenses you own, eg: 260 copys of Windows 98, 390 Copys of Windows 98 SE, and etc, etc.

You now create a list of known installed directory names (stored in a local database on this central server you are using), eg:
*\Microsoft Office\*
*\Microsoft Visual Studio\*
Gather where they are in the drive:
*\Microsoft Office\* was in D:\program files\Microsoft Office\

you get the picture. (if you don't, oh well)

Now do the fine tuning, gather a list of install applications from the Windows Installer, and finally grab the version of windows you are running.

Now all this information is associated with each computer in a giant database, and with simple SQL calls you can see how much you own of what. Also how many instances of "quake 3" and "Jedi knight 2" are installed.

You compare the two copys, realize you have 231 extra licenses of Microsoft Office installed (since you only own 200), so you goto the secretarys office, guidance office, english rooms, and maybe the library. you realize thats 195 licenses right there, awesome! then you pick 5 extra computers to have office installed, and run your "Cleanup script" which uninstalls office (or deletes it).
Do this for every version, eg: office 2000, office 97, since you may own more versions of office 97 than you do 2000, do the higher end version first. That's about as complicated as it gets.

Fully automated, and not to hard to do over a long weekend.

worked for me.

The audit is designed to prove ownership of the software. In essence, Microsoft is possibly forcing them to prove their own guilt. If you walk out of a store and set off the alarms, you have to show a receipt for your merchandise to prove that you paid for it. It's not up to the store to conduct an inventory analysis and prove there is a sweater missing. It's up to you to prove that you paid for it and own it legit.

"Innocent until proven guilty" is only valid for official cases, i.e. a criminal proceeding. This is at least how roman law operates. I'm not so sure about american law, but I'm guessing that Microsoft have included this statute in the EULA as for the audit. However, if they want to claim the money, and the school disagrees, this goes to civil proceedings....

Phillip "Jon" Katz, dead at 30 (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388636)

Jon Katz 1972 - 2002 Phillip "Jon" Katz was found dead on April 22nd of the year 2002. I have a copy of the ABC News obituary here [esva.net] . It's fairly gruesome.

Some folks have asked me what I know about Jon Katz. It occurs to me that most folks have probably never heard the story, and of the ones who have heard of it, few would know or remember the details. So here's what I know about Jon Katz, plus a little history to put it in context. The dates could be off a bit. I also have a copy of Ben Baker's take on the whole deal, which goes into a lot more detail.

In 1985 I wrote a program called ARC. It became very popular with the operators of electronic bulletin boards, which was what the online world consisted of in those pre-Internet days. A big part of ARC's popularity was because we made the source code available. I know that seems strange these days, but back then a lot of software was distributed in source. Every company that made computers made a completely different computer. Different architectures, operating systems, languages, everything. Getting a program written for one computer to work on another was often a major undertaking.

Then sometime around 1987 or so Jon Katz came out with PKARC, which was basically my ARC program with the compression/decompression routines rewritten in assembler, which made it run a lot faster. I have to hand it to him, he had a real talent for assembly coding.

We approached him about licensing, but he rejected the idea. One thing led to another, and eventually we sued him. Fortunately his program was such a blatant copy of mine that we were able to win the lawsuit before we ran out of money. In a negotiated settlement he again rejected any suggestion of licensing and went for a cash-out settlement. He repaid us for most of our legal bills and promised to stop selling his program sometime in 1988.

Then he fiddled with the file format a bit, renamed it from PKARC to PKZIP, and kept right on selling it.

We sort of lost touch after that. We would have liked to have kept in touch, but we couldn't afford the legal bills. There wasn't a lot to sue for anyway. None of us was getting rich.

So now Jon Katz is dead. He drank himself to death, alone in a motel room, a bottle of booze in his hand and five empties in the room. One can only guess what drove him to such a tragic end, but it is a fitting demise for a man whose professional reputation is based entirely on a lie.

I can think of no more fitting epitath than the final clause of the original ARC copyright statement:

"If you fail to abide by the terms of this license, then your conscience will haunt you for the rest of your life."

Yeah, but maybe if the kids in school use linux, they won't be so afraid to touch a computer that doesn't have windows on it.

It's amazing how much Microsoft relys on users being absolutely scared to death to use something other than windows. If kids learn its not really all that different to use a windows machine as it is to use an Apple or Linux w/ Gnome or KDS, then thats a good thing. Maybe all those single GUI arguments will go by the wayside, too. We should be teaching our kids how to run a computer not exactly what button to click. GUI environments are alike enough that you should be able to teach students the basic concepts that make any GUI workable.

Re:linux in school (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388755)

Two sides to that argument: if Win is so easy to use it shouldn't matter. But if said students get familiar with Linux (which ought to cost the school a lot less in terms of licence costs) they also run the chance of discovering what's under the hood. It's the difference between video and a book: the latter may accidentally engage that grey matter to do something itself. The idea of a student is that they occasionally pick up a bit of knowledge (mainly between parties, but I digress ;-). The "we will chew your food for you" Windows approach would avoid that phase. Oh sorry, I forgot that was the aim in the first place. Write 100 times: "I will just buy whatever is being marketed at me" or "I will not question, just hand over the money that was meant to educate me and later my children". Yup. That'll work. No, you can't use a word processor.

I don't agree at all. School should not be the most expedient means of preparing their charges for the workforce.

Even if school is actually just to turn out a legion of docile sheep ready to submit to their supervisors (which does seem likely), do you actually think that someone who can use KDE is going to have more than 2 minutes of trouble figuring out winwhatever? The GUI changed from 95 to 98 to NT 4.0 to ME to XP. That doesn't seem to be a huge problem. And kids have less fear of tech than grownups, so a different UI is less stressful.

For good or bad, most of these GUI environments are pretty much the same, as is the common software which runs in them. Click on the picture of a printer to print, click on the character in italic to change the font to italic, etc. It's not very difficult to made the adjustment, in my opinion. Figuring out which option is on what menu can be a pain, but that's what Help is for, no?


Besides, if other schools are like the ones local here, all they're teaching is basic stuff that most kids could figure out in an hour or so if the needed to: word processing, spreadsheet basics, etc. Kids come into schools knowing how to use a mouse and keyboard and even if they don't it takes less than a day to teach them. I don't see a real threat to their 'competitive advantage' if they go to a school using Macs or Linux boxes in place of Windows.

Not just schools, it's a form of retaliation against the .gov by microsoft, in response to the recent trials.

A friend of mine works for an arm of the VA (Veterans Affairs) According to this friend, the VA is being systematically searched by M$ for license compliance, so far with grim results. Supposidly the VA is about 20million out of compliance with M$ products. It doesn't just stop at M$ stuff though.

While M$ is doing their "sweeps" they will make it their business to report any competitors product being out of license as well. This includes everything from an over the limit shareware version of winzip, to "borrowed" installed copies of quicken, and the like.

It's pretty clear what is going on. The states that have fined M$ are owed money, but all M$ has to do is prove they are out of license compliance.

.gov M$ you owe us $15million
M$ We pay up when you pay us for our software

It's a pretty smart tactic on M$'s part when you think about it. It's not like M$ hasn't known for years everyone pirates their software to hell. It's just kinda funny how they use it as a trump card to save their ass.

IANAL ... but probably not. The reason cops DO get court orders, is because of the investigation of the cops, it is believed that there is enough evidence to convict the person in question.

In Microsoft's case, they are on a fishing expedition, and as such, probably would be denied a court order, unless they could prove that the person they want to audit is committing a crime.

Of course, they could just bill the school system, and then offer to reduce the bill by the actual number of machines legally licensed. The problem with this, is that the school system gives up several rights that are (should) be protected by the Constitution.

I think the point is that MS says that you are entering into a contract when you click "I agree" on any of their installation license windows. One of the terms is that they can come in and audit you at any time.

But, what about a business that says "we used to have Windows, Office, and SQLServer, but now we use Solaris, Linux, StarOffice, and Sybase. Get bent."

Would they sue? What would their burden of proof be to get their audit approved? How far could I take this argument: "I will not expose any of my computers or the sensitive data on them (like school records) to ANY outside party."

It is my understanding that if you do that, they will go before a federal court and request that the court issue a warrant to search the premises for pirated software. The court usually grants the request, and the auditing team returns with federal marshalls, and proceeds with the audit.

Since this is a school district, I'm not sure if Microsoft would be so forward.

I'm sure someone reading this in MW, or a local LUG, has a spare few hours and a hundred dollars or so write a couple of hundred Linux CD-ROMs and post them with a clear and reasonable letter to the govenors of these schools, pointing out the benefits of OSS software.

With a little effort you'll have done a lot of good for the schools of MW and shown Microsoft for the callous bastards that they are.

Do the Math (1, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388689)

The article cites 25,000 users and MS is offering the software for $500,000

That is $20 a copy. Deal with it or switch to linux. Yup, those horrible horrible businessmen.

Re:Do the Math (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388724)

That's $20 per copy PER YEAR. Also, most of those computers most likely were shipped with a legal copy of windows, so that's $20 per year for copies of Windows that were already paid for.

I live in Portland (5, Insightful)

legLess (127550) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388710)

Several years ago there was a property-tax revolt in Oregon, similar to an earlier one in California. In Oregon we don't pay sales tax, so property taxes are higher. Some businesses view this as a problem, since they typically own high-value property. Since the tax-limitation measures, state revenue has fallen dramatically. If the state hadn't started legalizing gambling (video poker machines, mostly) they'd be in even deeper shit than they are now.

So what the combo of less property tax and more gambling has done is shift the tax burden for schools from business to individuals, and disproportionately to poorer individuals, who tend to gamble more (this is not a value judgement, just a fact).

Also, Portland currently has the highest unemployment in the nation - about 9.5% last I checked. Furthermore, our Superintendent or Schools ... well, we don't have one right now. Ben Canada (tenure of less than a year) was summarily dismissed for a variety of reasons (*cough* most of which were brought up in the hiring process, not that I'm bitter). This is one of the worst times, financially and politically, for the Portland Public Schools since they were founded.

I hope that helps put this quote from the article in context:
"What would it cost Portland Public Schools, which is already facing a $36 million shortfall, to sign that Microsoft School Agreement?


"A rough number? $500,000," Robinson said, "which translates, roughly, into 10 teaching positions."
The trouble is, if 60 days isn't enough time to audit 25,000 machines it sure as hell isn't enough time to convert them to Linux. It boggles my mind that Microsoft is going so far out of its way to piss people off. [Insert ob. Princess Cinnamon-Bun quote here]

Generic software (5, Interesting)

jvmatthe (116058) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388715)

The comment in the article about generic software is a clever observation. After all, we have generic drugs, generic foods, off-brand clothing lines. Each of these is most likely a lucrative market for the companies that don't command name brand recognition. A significant portion of the population of the world can't reasonably afford the top o' the line products.

So it seems that generic software, which does almost everything that name brand software does, should be a natural part of the computing world. Yet, where are those generic word processors and spreadsheets and even operating systems? Why is 95% of the desktop market, including these important applications, controlled by one company with nearly impenetrable barriers to entry?

And does this news article point to an example of that very company moving to stamp out a potential insurgence of that generic software? Would we stand for Del Monte moving to shut off the supply of generic branded vegetables on store shelves, especially when someone pointed out that many families couldn't afford the more expensive brand? Why should we stand for Microsoft bringing in jack-booted thugs against schools that have budget shortages?

Yeah, that's inflammatory language. So what? :^)

Microsoft making the case for Linux (2)

beanerspace (443710) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388718)

In my spare time, I do charity work. Much of it is non-technical, but some is the obligatory website and or a bit-o-help when thier office network goes kafloooie.

With the recent annoucements of user friendly distributions such as Lycoris [lycoris.com] and Mandrake [mandrake.com] (I've yet to give the new Debian [debian.org] a spin), I have been trying to get the office staff of the church I attend to make the switch.

Sure, they won't get ALL the power of MS Word, but then again, THEY DON'T ever really use all that power anyway.

Recently, I had been warning them about MSFT's draconian licensing practices ... which generally fell on deaf ears.

I'd like, at this time, to thank Microsoft for making my case for me.

M$ is doing a cash grab having missed their revenue targets recently. M$ knows that nobody has their ducks in a row when it comes to licences and all this amounts to is a version of the "protection racket." (i.e. Pay us some amount of money to protect yourselves from us)

Maybe /.'ers should help them out by putting a distro together with X and Wine and StarOffice to replace all of the M$ softeare they have.

A few Clarifications... (5, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388774)

1. The audit request does not specifically say that they can forego the audit by changing to the very expensive School License Agreement. It does point out, however, that the audit request came from the marketing department and included brochures and FAQ's for the SLA.

2. Most Schools purchase their MS software through Volume License agreements which have a clause stating that periodic audits are a term of the agreement.

3. The Oregonian article stated that if schools choose to have MS conduct the audit, they need to pay MS's costs if just one computer is found out of compliance. I believe the actual clause states that they need to be more than 5% out of copliance district wide.

Having stated this, I am an employee at one of these districts and the amount of work is staggering. I thought I was going to be the only Anti-MS zealot to see what a heavy handed tactic this is, so I am pleasantly surprised that many others see it and feel the same way.

FYI...I have posted Anonymously since my e-mail makes it easy to see who I am and which district I work for, and many here don't feel that getting rid of MS software is a good idea.

Did anyone else notice this? On my SuSE 7.3 with Mozilla 0.9.9, viewing this page (be that online or offline after wget'ing the page) crashed Mozilla! It's not the ads code, I just cut it out and re-opened the disk file, Mozilla still crashed. It's the first time I have this kind of problems with Mozilla, and I'm not amused for it to happen on *slashdot*.

It is sad to read about the world's wealthiest couple treating our children so shabbily. All Microsoft had to do is to provide a "token" which could be attached to each PC hard drive to demonstrate ownership. My recommendation to the school district is "convert to Linux". With very few exceptions any application that a school district needs can be run under Linux. On the last day of school all possibly unlicensed PC's should be wiped and converted to Linux over the summer. That could also be done today. I burned all my licenses when I converted to 100% Linux. Never felt better.

To me, this sounds like Microsoft is threatening to have its goons "audit" the school at a time when the school probably can't afford the staff to do the audit.

If the school can't afford the audit, they can pay Microsoft a yearly tribute to not audit them, but they lose access to the software once they stop paying. And they have to pay for even non-Microsoft computers, like iMacs.

I wouldn't be surprised if once they get schools into this subscription idea, eventually the annual tribute for Microsoft software for Apple computers will be higher than that of Windows-based computers.

Man, someone should stop them before they become a monopoly!

Could someone please explain to most of us clueless folk how this audit crap works? How is it that M$ is able to legally go on the premises and invade the schools computers or force them to provide proof of ownership etc?

Do they have to get some sort of subpoena? before a judge? if so, how is it they seem to be able to get subpoenas easier than the fbi to bust into an arabs house?

Quick, tell them about FreeBSD (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3388799)

I believe the majority of people got sucked into Linux because they didn't know about FreeBSD. Someone tell these schools about FreeBSD before they go down the wrong path using an OS which reinvents what's already been BSD for years.

Interesting tactics (1)

hosebee (218054) | more than 12 years ago | (#3388802)

In the school districts I'm familiar with (and they are no where near a statistical sampling), those who switched to Linux either loved Linux, or where of the opinion, "Well, there are some problems with Linux (mostly read: we need to get used to a slightly different way), but it is still better than Microsoft."

And while there are plenty of good things about Microsoft software, given the current climate of security concerns and lack of funding in education, most school ITs are more than willing to give Linux a serious evaluation. It seems to me these strongarm tactics will only bring school management in line with this view.

I'm curious as to when Microsoft strong-arming reaches critical mass, and "Well, Microsoft, you want us to play by stupid rules or you'll take your ball home? Okay, we've got a new ball!" becomes the standard reaction.
