Schools and open source:

"Why, after all, proprietary software developers offer gratis copies of their nonfree programs to schools? Because they want to use the schools to implant dependence on their products, like tobacco companies distributing cigarettes to school children. They will not give gratis copies to these students once they've graduated... Once you're dependent, you're expected to pay, and future upgrades may be expensive."
