    Oh come on, Finns! Didn't you get the memo that only Windows 8 will provide a future for all students? Clearly the comparatively high quality and level of education of Finnish students is burning, and they must jump. It cannot be sustained, so the existing system must be abandoned. It is time to adopt the Microsoft education curriculum. With this, Finland can successfully, drastically reduce the number of educators, divest huge amounts of school real estate, slash maintenance costs, and give the five remaining students a wonderful head start on their success.

    Yours truly, Stephen Elop.
