Re: Divide and rule

When I worked in schools the Arts and IT staff were the most chilled there, the name of a software wouldn't have been a problem.

I deployed GIMP to several hundred PCs in high schools, back then "GIMP" was a term used in gaming to say something had been reduced in effectiveness and that's how the kids also used the word.
