Cuts in College Computing Budgets Are Wider and Deeper, Survey Finds
The Chronicle of Higher Education reports today that "one-third of the 632 two- and four-year institutions that replied to the survey said their budgets for academic computing had fallen for the current academic year. . . . Fifteen percent of the institutions said their academic-computing budgets had dropped by 5 percent or more."
Seems like if schools would eliminate the Microsoft tax in all of their IT purchases, these budget cuts could easily be made up.
