Um, it would if the Iraqis were offering it for free.  (-:

Daniel, I'd like to see every school running Debian but the fact is most
aren't; further, I strongly suspect most schools where Squeak is installed
aren't running Debian either.  My own experience is that a certain decidedly
un-open OS rules the roost thus far, but Squeak doesn't really seem to care.

So do I, nor do I see what's holding them back.
