Sun in K-12

Chris Dawson has been convinced that Sun is starting a push in K-12. This makes sense technically, since virtualization, thin clients and their open source software stack are all maturing and starting to make sense economically and environmentally.

I don't know if it will work as a business strategy, and I don't care one way or another if Sun sells schools hardware, but I would point out that a trivially small amount of sponsorship money (in the grand scheme of things) would be of great help to the open source in schools community and provide a nicely leveraged branding platform for an open source friendly company like Sun.
