Apple UK boots education

    Blimey I remeber them when I was at school in the 80s - we had a 480Z which had only the tiniest bit software in ROM - you had to load BASIC off a tape! - it seemed a nightmare to me when I had already been programming a PET for 2 years with its built in BASIC.

    When I was at school...

    About 5 years ago RM installed a Windows NT network at my school (when I was in 6th year). Immediately it started to fail repeatedly and it caused all sorts of problems that didn't exist on the Macs before. Then they ran out of hard disk space on the server. Some moron had decided 10G would be enough for the whole school!

    I also saw three RM displays fail and countless computers. Total c*** hardware and incompetent people.
