Tonight was open house at the middle school my daughter may attend next year. During the tour I got a look around the media center (a.k.a. library), where a surprise awaited. Over the last couple years, the local school system has replaced aging iMacs with Dell computers (the Dells came in and the Apples out this year at the elementary school). I saw desktops and notebooks around the periphery of the library.
But in the center of the room, under the sign “Digital Video Library,” sat five iMac G4 computers set up on two tables. Apparently, the gentleman in charge of the media center decided Windows PCs suit for productivity tasks, but for creativity that only Macs will do.
