Seriously, how pathetic would it look, teaching a linux/mac course, but forcing the user to use a PC with IE to take the course?
I've never seen a Mac at this school. There may be a few but who knows? There are certainly no Mac courses. Hardly any Linux classes. Maybe one?
I also never said that FF issues weren't passed on to the vendor and that the vendor wouldn't try to accomodate FF users. Even so, the system is older and was built with IE in mind. Almost all of the users use FF. The syllabus says to use IE. IE is free and it seems reasonable to expect students to use it.
