I think one of the morals of this story is that if the teacher had an open
mind, she could be saving the school $. But, the thing is, I don't think
helios' reply really helped her have more of an open mind. Most of his reply
is calling the teacher an AISD monkey. I don't even feel he properly
addressed her main concern, which was that this OS was some sort of pirated
version of winders or atleast in some way illegal.

This would have been a perfect opportunity for him to talk about Linux, not
about some AISD conspiracy.
