This article talks about the school system running so lean and mean (thanks to Symantec and Altiris products) that they don't have to waste money on high-paid IT folks.

In their own words:
"What's the point of having top-notch IT if the children are holding on all day and can't concentrate because they can't go to the stinking toilets?"

Pages 4 and 5 highlight some of the benefits of Altiris and Symantec, including allowing students to re-image their own PCs.

Read it for yourself ">here.

Screenberts toilet seats story is m aking lots of us unemployed.
And that just at the moment i figured out how to put SvS completely on a U3 usb stick.
Probably i have to figure out to get paid for svs4usb, because screenbert took away my food, drinks, and my car.

Do you have a roomba? How would you make the Vacuum cleaner automatically turn on?

Yes, I do have a Roomba. They have nifty IR sensors which give them remote control operations. Simply emulating the IR signal that turns it on and causes it to back off its charger works like a charm!

Good article, but I wonder if you can measure also the time spent for all "users" ... :-)

This definitely could cause IT staff to lose jobs. Not all bosses believe that a team of IT is necessary to manage 2000 computers and 10,000 students. This article tends to give that opinion. I would like to know how they have the permissions setup to allow students to rebuild their own systems.
