I worked for a Boys and Girls Club over the summer last year and redid their network. This summer I went back for two weeks and switched every computer over to Firefox. The kids were going to some of their favorite sites which install tons of ad-ware and malware and was just slowing everything down. They barely noticed the switch minus the new icon. They love it now as it's a whole lot faster and doesn't get any popups. Just to be safe of course, I banned them from using IE (through GP, not verbally). Eventually I'd like to switch them to Linux, but since they get all their MS software free, that probably won't happen.
