I have been using redhat then fedora in my classes. I teach adult
education on contract so often there is a Microsoft bias/history to
overcome. I have been using knoppix cds at first to show them they
can have an opsys for everywhere they go. Once we get into the
subject further we install fedora core (latest stable version). Most
are disappointed that they cannot access ntfs drives out of the box
(often they install it dual boot w Windows of some variation).
Are there intentions to include ntfs kernel modules & tools in later
releases ??? It is easy enough for experienced people to add them
(see www.linux-ntfs.org). However it probably stops a few from
delving into linux any deeper. Lets face it Windows is ubiquitous but
costly most people would be happy with an alternative but they cannot
drop their windows investments (knowledge & software) that easily.
One small step for fedora ....
I'm still waiting on some info from a few people.
But at this point, I'm thinking the Fedora Women Project might be best
as a brief side bar.
There are lots of women doing things with and for Fedora, but like women
all over the world we're ususally busy doing too much.
