> Do any of you have word on the educational program for Red Hat Linux?

> Here is what I have been hearing:
> - expect a formal program end of next week (e.g., Dec4 or Dec 5)
> - expected to have both site licensing and per unit pricing
> - have heard that student site licensing may be $2500/year 
> (no telephone or online support, just updates). 
> - have heard that servers will be $50 and desktops/laptops 
> will be $25. Updates only, no telephone or online support
> - if you want support, then near list price
> 
> I am encouraging Red Hat to consider providing telephone 
> support to central IT organizations if they will triage calls 
> for the campus. Also quantity discounts since it costs money 
> to do PO's (and for them to handle).
> 
> Of course, until there is a formal program, these are all 
> speculation and possibilities.
> 
> There is also the fedora project for those who prefer a 
> community approach and no license cost.

> Anyone have a good scoop on what to expect?
