That's funny. I've been working on Linux computers in my computer class for 2 yrs now and we all know that linux is free, that teacher is an idiot.

My son, when he was in junior high, had a teacher who asked the class to name three weapons of war used during the World War I as homework. When he brought his answers back to school, she marked these as wrong. His answer, the airplane, the tank, and the submarine. She thought they didn't come into being until World War II. Yes, they also teach school.

To be fair, If I saw some teenager handing discs out like that, there is a 90% chance it's piracy. However, It was a shame that this teacher thought that it was nothing but piracy and totally went off their socks!

At the school I was at we were not supposed to borrow or lend anything, even if we were giving it away. I think the teacher did have a right to take the disks away and stop the student from going on about Linux which only deviates the teachers lesson plan if one was in progress.

As for the teacher thinking it was illegal he/she made a mistake.

Well, the thing is that they told her it was Linux and that it was free, and not only that, she said she knew Linux etc :dodgy:. So yeah, I don't have a lot of sympathy for her :p.

How low can you drop? Apparently very low.

If she knew of Linux then she knew it was free. How stupid some people are will never seas to amaze me.

I do not know so much about computers. I am computer literate but not computer knowledgeable (it usually does what I want, but I ain't got a clue how it works). However, I know that Linux is free and understand the basis on which it is grounded. I knew this before I even came into contact with you load of computer geeks :rolleyes:

That teacher = idiot


There is one born every minute. Apparently they are attracted to the teaching profession.

Man if I were the student, I would laugh--out loud--in her face for stating such a ridiculous claim.

I laugh at those who oppose the unstoppable advancement of Linux.

Oh no, Linux was created by the USSR!

The teacher isn't an idiot for taking away the disks, (s)he is an idiot for taking them away and then not researching and finding out that Linux is legal.

But if sharing or lending is against school policy like it is at most schools then what the teach did do was "right".

Sharing is against the rules? or do you mean file sharing? Because I thought schools tried to encourage that kind of behavior :p.
