Hi folks!

I'm looking for persons how can give me reflections on how UNIX-based solutions in schools work out. My school has always been running on windows/novell solutions and now I wonder how the UNIX-solutions get along.

How does people without good computer-experience get along with the systems? Does it take them long time to get into the system?

Are there any problems with computers that "crashes" or whole systems that do so? Are there alot of downtime? (I suppose not, but you never know..)

What are the main advantages/disadvanteges? Why?

Happy for all answers!
