>> You get very upset about this hardware stuff,
I get upset about the Hardware aspect because - for some bizzarre reason,
everyone thinks that because we are enforcing a hardware standard,
either we are on the take, or we are have some damn responsibility to be exposed

This is not about restricting what people can use in the class,
IT ABOUT NOT MAKING THE HARDWARE THE FOCUS.
Standardization of the hardware with a known venodr is

can NOT be done properly without student ownership of the
hardware, and standardized hardware at that.
