The best they can do with anything that exist.

Still this is not a problem for me as i do not use windows.
But it's bad as there are people that use windows because they want to and 
they should pay only for windows, no extra tax.

In the same time they do best possible marketing for microsoft - computer 
lesson in schools. But i don't opt to change it to use say FreeBSD in 
schools. I opt for removing computer lessons from public schools.
EVEN BETTER - to remove public schools at all, and not getting money 
for them by taxes. then parents could decide to what private school will 
children go, what will learn, and pay for it.

>> The government is always a SOURCE, not solution to a problem.

....deleted part below after reading, as i don't have anything to add...

You just exactly described problem of public school's computer lesson.

But it's just part of a bigger problem - existence of public schools paid 
from out taxes.

This is not only on computer lessons.

Most teachers are just dumb, because there is no free-market mechanism to 
do the selection. If teacher will get employed in public school, it's 
really difficult to fire him/her out.

In schools i was, most teachers was simply dumb. I don't require wonders, 
but knowing basics of physics is quite important requirement of being 
physics teacher.
