Convincing a Music department to drop Mac's and Sibelius
This is my problem :-)
What ammunition can anyone offer to help me 'convert' a Music department from Mac's and Sibelius to Linux and Musescore. Forget the money, teachers seem to think it grows on trees ! While I'm grubbing around building servers out of bits they are 'we can't teach music without £50k of Mac's' !
What can I say bear in mind I am a computer person not a musician - like ( insert someone famous here ) uses it all the time. It does everything Sibelius does etc. I know that they will say Sibelius is 'the industry standard' but from what I have read Avid is not popular and their stranglehold maybe coming to an end.
