I hadn't heard of the site before, but I went and had a look (and forwarded
the URL to several other folks).
They do need a bit of reeducation, I'm afraid, as their FAQ states:
| 8. What kind of computer equipment should agencies transfer to schools
| and educational nonprofit organizations?
| The Executive Order defines "educationally useful federal equipment" as
| computers (Windows based PCs and Apples) and related peripheral
| equipment. Computer software is also included where software vendors
| permit the transfer of licenses [Executive Order Section 4]. Agencies
| and private sector companies need to check with each software vendor or
| licensor for permission to transfer specific software. However, operating
| systems are a component of a computer's hard drive and should remain with
| the computers. Also, note that computer equipment availability varies.
Or maybe that was written in an era of darkness. ;-)
