The Mac Observer Spin: This is a great idea that lets all participants win. Auctioning the site licenses offers an excellent opportunity for school systems to acquire much needed software inexpensively. Of course it also offers Abbott Systems a great opportunity to get a lot more exposure for their product as well as a chance to get people using it.
A great idea that we hope makes Abbott some money and some users happy.
