As a head of a British Forces primary school in Germany I have fought a losing battle on behalf of RISC OS. Of our 60 schools mine is the only one still using RISC OS. We have two Access networks opf 14 and 22 machines respectively plus 6 stand alones. All A7000+ and RISC PCs. Maintenence is virtually nil, I do what needs to be done myself, maybe 30 minutes a week on average. The networks were introduced when Access first appeared some 12 years ago.

We have recently been forced by the MOD to have a 15 suite network based on Windows XP plus laptops for every teacher along with interactive whiteboards. The XP network needs external support every week. We are not allowed to install new software on the server until it has been tested by external 'experts' and only they can then install such software if they approve of it
