    I couldn't resist when I saw this news article Xavier School Deploys 600 Ubuntu Linux Desktops. In the original X-Men comics, Charles Xavier's school was called something like Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. I thought this was some sort of parody, but there really is a school (probably not for super powered mutants) with the name "Xavier" in it in the Phillipines. :wink:

    Would this have meant that Magneto had to use Windows (thus his repetitive failures)?

    Imagine tech support for the X-Men.

    "Yeah hi this is Wolverine... I just put an adamantium claw through my PC and hard drive. Is my data recoverable?"

    I sure as hell wouldn't want to say no!

    According to the Teacher's bios at the marvel wiki, "Shadowcat (AKA Kitty Pryde) taught Computer Science classes and was a part of the senior staff." I imagine she'd be the one to provide computer support. :wink:

    At first I also got it hard to believe that XMEN was based on a true story.
