Here's me saying, "something about Open Source Software or OSCON."

Or, is that a little too literal of an interpretation? ;)

In the 10 years I've been working here, we've gone from a strictly Novell+Windows shop, to using FreeBSD for firewalls, to Debian Linux for file servers, to Ubuntu on every student/teacher desktop, to having fewer than 300 Windows licenses in the entire district.

We may not be creating a generation of OSS programmers (very little programming done on the Linux stations), but we are at least introducing every student to OSS everyday! ;)
