Yes it is amazing that a lot of systems out there still dont have
it... Problem with school systems is lots of times PC labs are these
all in one setups where all machines are the same and everything is
installed from one master set of cds. they dont like doing anything
thats not on those cds! We also have folks with a lot more fear on
the PC side in downloading and installing something on their PC, even
if its from a big company like Apple. the seem more worried about
viruses and spyware than it just conflicting with something on their
system (a legitimate worry).
Its made life a bit tough on the education side with multimedia.
Still really worry about having split development, that always ends
up more work than you ever plan for in my experience!
