Bemidji State University’s ground-breaking experiment with Apple Macintosh computers, which have replaced PCs running Microsoft Windows in several labs around campus - including the Deputy Hall SuperLab - is featured today at campustechnology.com.

Campus Technology writes: “In the mixed computing environments common on university campuses, supporting multiple operating systems and myriad hardware configurations can be a nightmare for IT. In the past (and in some cases up through the present), one solution has been to go with a single platform. Great for IT. Not so great for users. But at Bemidji State University in Minnesota, they’ve come up with another solution: to standardize the machines but to continue to offer choices in operating systems by providing faculty and students with dual- and triple-boot systems based on Apple hardware.”
