    Default Teacher threatens to call the cops over Linux

    The teacher spotted one of her students giving a demonstration of the HeliOS distro to other students. In a somewhat over-the-top reaction, she confiscated the CDs, put the student on detention and whipped off a letter to the HeliOS Project threatening to report it to the police for distributing illegal software.

    "I am sure you strongly believe in what you are doing but I cannot either support your efforts or allow them to happen in my classroom," writes the teacher, identified only as Karen.

    Because open-source is illegal now?
    I hear the voices inside my head. They counsel me. They understand. They talk to me.

    Nothing, she is just massively ignorant. Read the article, it is amazing. She acts as if a larger portion of servers aren't run on Linux. She does not get the point of Linux and that it IS free and open source.

    What a bitch.

    Seems like she's perfected the art of trolling.
