I work for a large college. Currently there is a building about a mile away which teaches photography and video. They all have apple macs which are now seven years old and need replacing. The building is also used for private tuition and brings a lot of money into the college.
We have to replace all the macs and have decided to change for high spec pcs. The main reason is for management on the network more than anything else, but that said, you can get higher spec machines for the same money. Obviously the new machines will be running windows 8, and we haven't the time or patience to train users up so that's where start8 comes in. Next they have asked if there is a way to have students videos set as wallpapers. This is what made us search google in the first place and brought us to stardock.
